It never ceases to amaze me how quickly people try to make every thing alright when someone is feeling sad, irritated, or some other negative emotion. We want to make him/her laugh, or we say, ” Don’t be mad,” or “Think positive thoughts.” What the person really wants to hear is: ” I’m sorry today has been a tough day for you. Go ahead and cry.”
We want our feelings to be validated by others. We want to be able to be human and have others accept us on our good days and on our bad days. People do not want to be judged by others. They want to be understood. They need acceptance and compassion. They need someone to hold their hand or give them a hug.
The next time someone you know is having a hard day, bite your tongue, validate their feelings, and try to accept them just where they are. They will love you for it.
