When we see our friends or someone else in a bad mood, we want to come to their rescue. Sometimes knowing what to do to put them in better spirits can be difficult.
Saying the wrong thing can make things even worse. Maybe they are not the type of person who likes hugs or wants affection. So what are you to do to make the person feel better? When you want to help someone but are scared of their reaction. Have no fear since I am here to help.
I am a person who does not want a hug. My mom is the type of person where you can say the wrong thing and it makes things 10times worse.
With that being said, let us get on with the post.
Give them space
The best advice my mom ever gave me was ‘if there is an argument going on, have both people go in separate rooms to cool off’.
This applies to people who are even having a rough day. Let them be until they are ready to talk. You never want to force anything even if you just want to help.
Tell the person ‘I would love to make you feel better but if you need your space right now, then that is fine’
Listen/ Be there for them
Communication is key to any relationship, friendship, workplace… The best thing someone can do is listen.
Let the person vent, be a shoulder for them to cry on and just be there for them. When the time is right, you will know when to input something.
