i need to remember this.Listening and showing you are there for someone is often more important than trying to find a "fix" for a problem. -- I need to practice this. I always feel like I need to help but listening already helps
I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings, even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn't guarantee that others will be good people. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person.
