I am feeling down. I don’t know what to do? I don’t want to talk to others. Why would they want to talk with me? I am Zero.
Have you seen me in your world? Do you know that an iceberg lies beneath my feelings? It is the iceberg that makes me stuck. The iceberg is my image of being Zero.
How can I get un-stuck? What can I do? How can others help me?
Can my image be shifted? Will my behavior change?
