Be a friend, listen, then shut up

Sometimes people don’t want your advice. They don’t want your sympathy, or a shoulder to cry on. They just want to tell their story.

Instead of cutting them off to give them your solutions, just sit back and listen while they solve their own problems.

Listening: a gift more valuable than advise.
