Practice Active Listening

One of the most important things you can do for a sad person is to listen actively. This means paying close attention to what they are saying, without interrupting or trying to offer solutions. Active listening involves reflecting back what you hear, using statements like: "I hear you saying that you're feeling really overwhelmed right now"

By actively listening, you create a safe space for the sad person to share their feelings and concerns. You also demonstrate that you are fully present and engaged in the conversation, which can help to build trust and deepen your connection.
