There's two terms that are important here: associated and dissociated. If you close your eyes and imagine an experience, you will either see it "through your own eyes" (associated) or from a "fly on the wall" (dissociated) perspective.
So here's the trick. When you're feeling overwhelmed, unfocused or just plain stuck, close your eyes and imagine yourself (dissociated). Imagine this person with an issue and what advice you could offer them. Write them a short message, as if you're making a post on the forum.
