“People don’t always remember what you say, but they’ll always remember how you made them feel” — Maya Angelou
And it works both ways, so ask yourself how do you feel when you initiate a conversation with the intent to help somebody but that person tries to show you how stupid you are to believe what you are telling them? The emotional price is the highest price you pay in any negotiation, so make the decision to note that person’s reaction and decide how is the best use of your energy. The off switch is often the best route.
