A patient has great understanding of other people. She's worked in the hospitality industry so has worked with large numbers of people all her life. She's often been a kindly ear to those with troubled needs.
Recently she's needed a bit of help.
On discussing how she's an incredibly resourceful soul with plenty of ideas for others' problems, so has the tools in her toolbox to manage with a helpful steer, she smirked at me and told me, "It's easier to look into a goldfish bowl than to be in one."
Insight and genius, all in one.
