Hi Dace Mars, thanks a lot for reading and commenting! That's only a point to watch out for — out of many points in the article. I didn’t mean it or see it as “game-playing” because there isn’t a game to play. I encouraged showing your values, boundaries, and standards in action and suggested better questions to ask instead of this exact one. That said, I do see where your comment was coming from and it was good feedback! So I have made some slight edits to change the tone of the article. Thanks again!
