How to convince a person who almost drowned to become friends with water again?
I met a girl who almost drowned as a little child. She is extremely afraid of water since that time. I love swimming for lots of reasons, I would even say that it SAVED my life. I'd like her to reunite with water somehow. I also think that her fear is not a normal condition and should be overcome. Any idea how I should proceed not to scare her even more? I know I should be slow and delicate. I am sorry if anything is wrong with my English, I'm not a native speaker.
