Listen, don’t fix

Everyone needs their thoughts, feelings, and opinions to be heard and validated. It is human nature to want to jump in and help fix things, but it may not be a solution that your friend or partner is after.

When I ask you to listen to me and you immediately start giving me advise or jump to my rescue, you are not doing what I asked you to do. I do not need you to fight for me. I can do that all on my own. I just wanted someone to listen. Take a step back and let me lead the way, in my own time.
