Mentioning how tired you must be

Your parent may focus on all of the negative aspects of chasing one’s dreams, like being tired. When you tell her about the crazy week you had—the good crazy week you’ve had—between this meeting and that late night presentation and that networking event, she says, “Hm. You must be very tired. Is this perhaps all too much for you to handle?” She doesn’t say, “Wow, things are going well for you!”
