"Cry me a river, build me a bridge, and get over it."

I marvel that the hardest parts of my life (fear, mistakes, guilt, sin, doubt, failure) are of man, while what I crave most (rest, hope, love, peace, forgiveness) are of God.

Re vutret, re ianperquotas.
[ɾe ˈvutɾət, re ɪ̯ɐnpəɾˈkoːtɐʃ]
1SG INT 1SG NEC-concentrate-JUS.1SG
Hold on, I need to concentrate.

Note that "hold on" is not translated in this sentence. The intensifier vutret is so prominent on its own that no additional interjection is needed in this situation in Yélian.

:con: Caelian

Zan rüpjor bei, Rar gyatros vuplinëv.
[zan rypˈjɔɾ bɛɪ̯, rah gʲatˈrɔʃ vupliˈnəf]
2SG.NOM silent.MASC.NOM COP.2SG, 1SG.NOM brain.INST see.1SG>3SG-NEC
Be quiet, I need to see with the mind.

New words for this challenge

gyatres [gʲatˈɾɛʃ] - brain, mind, smart, to be smart
Etymology: new root

The phrase for "to focus" literally translates to "to see with the mind".
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

[kaˈjulmes, ˈeːku ˈpliːɣas ai̯ˈd͡ʒantʰame naː]

Please, I must focus now.

New word for this challenge:

ayjanthame - to teach; (with reflexive pronoun) to focus
Etymology: causative derivation from yāthame "to think; to assume; to find"
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.
