A friend is about to take a big risk, and you’re worried, and torn. You want to keep them from making a mistake, but you don’t want them to think you don’t believe in them. Just try to do your best to help them see things more conservatively. Alert them to the downside of their idea and what could happen. Ask them if they’re ready for a worst-case scenario. They’ll know you’re speaking from a place of caring, not judgment. Just remember that it’s still their call in the end.
You may be thinking quickly today, but putting a little more thought into how you actually relate those lightning-fast ideas certainly can’t hurt. Choose your words for their effect on your listeners.
You might come across as kind of frosty, but don’t let your partner dissuade you from your logic. You’re in the right, even if it feels a little odd or even heartless. Things will pick up.
You may be going about your regular routine, but everything has changed. You might not be able to put your finger on just what the difference is, but you can bet the bank that it’s for the better.
