When an authority figure tells you to do something today, do it. Now is not the time to get defensive or ask why. Now is the time to be more obedient. Trust your boss. It’s important to question authority figures in order to be valuable to them, but today isn’t the day for major doubt. The people around you know more than you do, which is probably why they’re asking you to take on more responsibilities. The only way to truly comprehend your abilities is to use them.
Hope springs eternal for you, or at least it should, all things considered. Reality may not quite be measuring up to your standards at the moment, but give it a little time and a little space.
Your objective approach makes perfect sense to you, but your partner might feel like you’re a little detached. Give them the emotional context so that they get the full picture.
It’s not an easy day, but not because you’re having business problems. They’re still on the back burner. Today you’re dealing with bullies or hogs who demand more than their fair share of whatever’s yours. Don’t let them bring out the worst in you.
