If a current financial investment is getting worse, is it time to cut your losses and move on?
Don't go out of your way to compensate for the foolishness of others today. You're usually the type of person who tries to rescue people from their silly behaviour or step in to help repair the damage they have caused. This time, you might choose to leave them to dig their own hole and clean up their own mess. You're expending far too much energy solving the problems of others and not enough time on your own needs and tasks.
If you want to make a connection with someone, find common ground and start from there.
