Reverse empathy

Rather than putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, try to remember a time when you wore the same shoe.

Try to recall a time when you struggled in a similar way and with a similar set of difficult emotions and moods. It's a powerful way to appreciate someone else struggle.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

One of the hardest things about other people’s bad moods is the emotions they tend to stir up in us.

Most people struggling emotionally don’t want someone to fix their pain, they went to feel understood.

Instead of viewing someone’s bad mood as a problem to be fixed, if your perspective slightly and try to see it as a puzzle.

You can’t directly control how someone feels, thus you’re not responsible for it.
