Helping the Struggling

Validating someone’s feelings is a lot easier said than done, especially if you don’t share an opinion, or if you, like my friend, don’t like to take sides. according to Braman “Instead of chiming in with another perspective or even simply nodding your head in agreement, try mirroring the other person’s struggle with the words “of course”––a simpler way of expressing “Yes, it makes total sense that you feel or think this way or want or need this thing, and I probably would, too, if I were in your shoes.” I like talking empathetically to people who are overwhelmed , how do you help the ones who are struggling ?
