Come to terms w/ sth
- Reading about attachment and commitment therapy, one interesting suggestion is to mirror the client’s language. This could be helpful for communication in general. Approach each conversation with someone you don’t know like a blank slate, like yeou’re learning language almost from scratch. And start picking up terms and phrases and patterns in their speech. Then, insofar as you can present your own ideas through the framework of the other person’s language patterns, they are likely to understand you better. Chameleonic communication..

Have been revising and revising and revising this to try to make it useful for future reference.. Still have work to do on II, III, IV, V… so basically all of it. I might just omit section IV, to be honest, since it’s not that complicated. V covers some of it anway.
