Went to the sink to get a pot, and the sink is filled with dirty dishes. I immediately felt intimidated, and tempted to run away from it all. Avoidance is a great strategy, or so I wanted to believed. Still, I needed to make something to eat. I made a bargain with myself. I'll simply clean the pot I want, and leave the other stuff for later. So I moved all the dirty dishes to one side of the sink, and left one side open for me to clean the pot. I put some dishwashing liquid in the pot and filled it with water. Then I said to myself, why not clean that fork over there, then the cups, then the bowls, and plates. Soon I had washed everything.
