Clarify your responsibility

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

A common pitfall people make when trying to deal effectively with other people’s bad moods is to overextend their responsibility to that person to include how they feel.

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.

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

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