How would you feel if a professional friend offered you counseling for weight loss? AND asked you to refer your friends who might want to lose weight to him? I am stunned. What do you do, go to your fat friends and say "This guy can help you lose weight." I have handled a TON of awkward (sp) situations but this has me stumped. Ignore? Then the person thinks you are rude (background I can't include). Refer people? Then you are being rude to your friends. Tell the truth to this person? "I would hurt feelings if I referred people to you so they could lose weight." Whywhywhy - why do people with good intentions NOT understand you can't lead a horse to water OR make him drink. This is stressing me out because of circumstances I can't even share here. So I guess I am asking y'all a question without all the info. PM me if you are really interested. Tough day today. Not processing well. Thank you all.
