Become a shock absorber. Let people share their pain and concerns with you. Rather than being reactive, empathise with them. Just by lending your ears and speaking a few comforting words you can make a positive impact on them. Most people can solve their own problems. They just need someone with whom they can share their moments of agony, pain, failures and challenges. Be that person. You don’t need to help them. Just be with them.
