Being an empathetic person has never been an easy thing. Not that I mean it’s difficult to be empathetic, but more that the fact that I am often leaves me wishing I could do more.
Maybe it’s just a male thing but when I hear someone having trouble I automatically want to help solve the problem. The hardest thing to do I think is to realize that sometimes the best way to help someone is to just stay silent and be there. Having always been the “advice guy” that method is somewhat foreign. After all, it’s been said that silence is one of the great arts of conversation.
See you tomorrow,
