Get out of the “Fix-it Mode”

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

Use Reflective listening. It means that when someone tells you something, you simply reflect back to them what they said, either literally or with your own slight spin on it.

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

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.

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

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