One thing that I have found being in divination that I think others who have been in it for a while have come across that one reading: The reading where you're held on edge about being outrightly honest as you should or should you sugarcoat or say nothing at all? Tho these readings are pretty rare, they do ring in mind very clearly. I've had my few dealing with people who were pretty much at their wits' end, folks who I could clearly tell that there was something that they didn't want to face (tho they get a reading. Why oh?), or people who just want reassurance that crap isn't really hitting the fan when in reality it's about to head into the wind turbines.
I usually tell folks before they get a reading that I'm pretty honest so if they don't want to hear the truth, don't ask for it. However, I've been met with people who really look like they're about to fall apart right in front of me and while I want to be honest, I try to tweak it a bit if possible so they can help keep what sanity they have left. Otherwise, I being with a, "Ok, I'm not gonna lie..." and try not to be brutally honest. And I think there was only one time that I didn't say anything at all about about one's person future and flubbed it over with a much happier ending than what they were going to get. I only did that because, well, I could tell that if I told them the truth, they prolly would have tried to kill themselves. I felt they needed something to reach for and hope for, something to tide them over the really bad times. What would you do when faced with such difficulty?
