You need to be honest and understand what your true limitations are, especially in terms of your job. If you aren’t confident about your abilities in a certain area, then it would not be a good idea to say that you’re a master of it. That kind of bravado might seem impressive, but it will only get you into some deep and very hot water. Be honest and be humble. The people who have authority over you will appreciate and respect it.
Things may look great through those rose-colored glasses, but you can’t see anyone’s true colors that way. Look a little more closely, and try your best to separate fact from fiction.
You need to sit down with your partner and talk things over. It shouldn’t be that serious, but you do need to make sure that your desires are more or less on the same page. If they’re not, figure out what to do about it.
You think you have an emergency plan, but the only way to find out if it works is to use it. So wanting to wait until a real crisis makes total sense. If you’re not sure, wait until another day.
