I'm trying to not *offer* things when people are sharing things with me. People often share their experiences to receive acknowledgement and affirmation that they and their feelings are valid, and I as a people pleaser interpret this as a ticking time bomb that must be fixed. It's so hard to just listen or if possible, offer some reflection on what you are hearing from them to better understand what they are feeling.
