Self-Management – Wow, this was a biggie! “I am feeling sad for him, I have to pull it together right now”, “I am worried but I need to be strong in this moment”, “What are we going to do”, “Is it safe, should I say yes or no”, “I am trying really hard not to punch him”.
Social-Awareness – “I’m feeling worried, sad, afraid, hopeful, exhausted.” “I can do this.” “We’ll get through this”.
