        R Recognition What is really happening?
        A Acceptance Can we accept that it’s happening?

        R Resistance The opposite of acceptance. Are we resisting reality?
        O Obliviousness The opposite of interest. Do you care about what’s happening?
        P Personification The opposite of non-identification. Taking things personally.

        Warmly,

        Ron
