This is August 29th of my book: ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time‘.
Take the opportunity today to empathise.
You ever have one of those days where nothing seems to go right? Where you feel life is out to get you? Where you don’t know which way to turn, you’re confused or frustrated or just plain angry?
Did one of your friends or family really listen to you and say something like: ‘Oh God! That’s terrible.’ or ‘Holy cow! how did you get through that?’ or ‘Oh you poor thing, I don’t know what I would have done in that situation.’?
They didn’t try to solve anything or give you advice or tell you what you should have said or done. They just offered support and understanding. How much better did you feel after that? If it’s never happened to you – imagine how you would feel if it did.
I’m hoping you said it made you feel better or would make you feel better. If that’s the case then offer that to someone today if the opportunity arises. Just listen and feel how they are feeling. Imagine You are going through that. Let them know you understand how they feel or at least can appreciate how they feel.
Offer NO solutions (unless asked for), offer NO advice (unless asked for).
