If you are saying the truth, you would not need to mend anything. But if you lie, you would be termed as a mendacious person who would need to mend and repair many a relationship.
You allay someone’s fears by saying that all is okay. Remember thus: Allay = All Okay!
You assuage by providing assurances about a good future to an aged and weak person. Remember the word “Assuage” using the words “assurance” and “aged”.
Just do not shy away. Negotiate. The world would be all the better for it.
The future is bright. As new dimensions are being added to our conversations, the future can only be better.
Anything that helps in predicting the end would portend the future. Remember thus!
Exceptional employees may lead to poor succession planning and poor results in the future. You want leaders and not work martyrs!
