“reduce” is an adverb meaning to “shallow.” To reduce means to make a small change in behavior, and as such, can be used to describe how much or how little we do.
If you’re like me, you probably have a habit of buying things (like wine or TV) that you’re not really using. Sometimes it’s your spouse or friends who are giving you a hard time with purchases, but that’s okay because there is an easier way. If you reduce your purchases, you’ll also notice that other people don’t seem to have a problem with you buying things you don’t really need anymore.
It sounds like your friend or family member is giving you a hard time about your purchases. I would suggest that they would be giving you a hard time if they bought something they really didnt need any longer. And they probably wouldnt be giving you a hard time if your purchases were less than an hour ago.
If you were given a box of vitamins and a bowl of scented tea that was supposed to be a gift for you and a card of your favorite brand, that would be your best bet. But since you’re not giving a gift to someone, you can’t give it to somebody else until they give you a box of vitamins and a box of scented tea.
If you think you have the time to give someone a box of vitamins and a box of scented tea, and they dont give you the box of scented tea, this is basically your next best bet.
You are in the wrong line of work if this is your career. What if you had the time to give a gift to a woman you hardly know and she says she knows you but has no idea youre even alive? The only way to get an honest answer would be to give the gift, which you did, and you didnt get an honest answer. This is the exact scenario, so if this is your career, you need to do something about it.
For those who have read the book, you know the main character, Nick, is the one who started this whole thing. In fact, when we were talking about this last week, one of the things we were talking about is that Nick is the one who’s supposed to be the hero here. All the guys in the book are there because they are there to help Nick, who is the one who decides to help Nick. But, as of right now, Nick is not the hero here.
The problem is that we have a very active society in which many people are trying to prove themselves to be the hero. We are told to be the hero, and if you’re not the hero, then you are the villain. But, as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray. As Nick says in the book, you do not have to be the hero, you just have to be a good person who tries to do good.
This is one argument that could be used against a lot of people, but I think it’s a good argument. People are so afraid of being good, that they stop being good. If you stop being good, then you stop being good. If you stop being good, then you stop being a person.
