The truth is an important commodity to you right now. Getting through the fog and cutting out that which no longer works for you is priority. You might be feeling a little hardcore, a little less sympathetic to sob stories and other tales of woe than usual. That’s alright. Sometimes it’s more important to be clear than to be sweet.
Get the job done and do it with the determination, diligence and discernment that you expect from others. Keep in mind though that the bigger picture includes compassion. You need not be cruel or mean to be truthful and serious. Not everyone is as tough-skinned as you are right now, so be aware of the potential effect your words might have.
