Making My Colleague Feel Positive

My company management has been putting a lot of pressure on my friend & colleague. He wants to retire early, but at the same time, he could not bear to part with his salary. Today, he told me that he would resign afterall. I told him that it’s indeed a good thing to do. He could spend more time with his family & children. I see him brighten up and I am happy for him. We had tea chatting about life.
