This episode discusses being considerate when trying to be encouraging. We all have different experiences and journeys. Some days are good, others are bad. We should try to avoid being harmful when we intended to be helpful. What's meant to push someone to continue, may push them to quit. Think before you speak, or maybe don't say anything at all. Whatever you do, just don't be a douche!
