When facing a difficult issue, it can help to start out by exploring how it is affecting you. This is a chance to allow yourself to honestly assess where you are in the story.
- It is a chance to check in to see how you are feeling – what emotions are in your heart, what impact the issue is having in your own body.
- It is a chance to explore what these feelings are telling you about what matters to you – what you want, what your values are.
- And it is a chance to step back and describe what the truth looks like for you about the story – what you see, and why you think things look that way.
