Honor, Protect and Share

"KNOW that the person you're talking to is going to be OK eventually. If you can't believe that, pretend that you do: invent in your mind a vision of this person back in a house, back in a job, back with their loved ones. It is not your job to problem-solve them into their new future, just hold out the possiblity for that in your mind for them to lean into."
