Well, that's unfortunate, but just how much power do you think you have to save such a profoundly unbalanced person from his/her inevitable disappointment?
I have no power to change the individual. It is only the individual that can save him/herself. The person has to become humble and that isn't always possible. All you can do as the instructor is offer your counsel and hope that what you share will be received.
