However, if your encouragement makes them withdraw, your positivity might be misplaced.

Even if you are well intentioned, it's best to consider this question: Are they asking for encouragement or do they just need to vent?

Seeking out people who draw out the positive side only can make you feel alone in your moments of vulnerability.

When someone is going through a hard time, insisting they stay strong is ineffective.

A question as simple as "How did you feel?" can help them feel that you share in their experience.
