He'd get on the back of a jet ski and point that box at me while I surfed, or fell. While I surfed and screamed during the hardest year of my life.

I have lived long enough to know that things that seem like the biggest pain to us are actually when growth is trying to happen. Pain should be held with wonder and with curiosity and not denied and suppressed.

If the person can do this, they bring a positive energy to it that it can transform the situation into an important breakthrough.
