You can't IGNORE it if you want to be prepared for it. You have to ACKNOWLEDGE it so that you know how to prepare for it.
You can't AVOID it if you don't ACKNOWLEDGE it so that you can do what you need to do so you can AVOID it.
You can't MOVE past it if you don't ACKNOWLEDGE it so you can walk around it to KEEP MOVING.
KNOWING what to EXPECT will help you ACCEPT it so you are PREPARED for it.
Don't PRETEND it isn't if it is.
Don't IGNORE it if you want to AVOID it.
KNOWING what you NEED to do is the only way that you will KNOW what you NEED to do to GET R' DONE.
