...Or, at least, make us feel worse...unsupported, lonely.
When some come on too strongly (for our own good, they say), we can react in a number of negative ways, including giving up hope...which is never good...not even for only a few minutes.

Please, smile at your tormentor; thank them for their concern; and wait for a better idea to occur to you.
It will, I promise.
