Everyone is passionate about something. They want to do something, achieve something. This is called the ambition, or aspiration of the person.
We sometimes share our ambition, & plans with our near, & dear ones. We are hoping they will guide us, support us, & give us moral encouragement. After all these are our dreams. And they need the right encouragement & motivation from our support system. Our emotions are attached to this. Hence, when someone shares their future plans handle it with sensitivity. Don’t hurt the person by saying it can’t be done. Even frank opinions when clothed in a compassionate, diplomatic clothing convey a similar message while taking into account the feelings of the heart & not hurting the person.
Small people belittle your ambitions, big people give you encouraging words &/or a helping hand !
