If you are one of a certain group of people, like me, you might be like a sponge, soaking in all of the stress of other people's problems or life events.
That's because you truly care about these people and always want to be there for them. I have always been a good listener but sometimes I can get stressed because of it, (usually when I am already stressed out over something else) because I sometimes try to offer solutions to their problems.
But, you can make the decision to relax and solve this problem, by being more SUPPORTIVE instead of trying to SOLVE their problems. By doing this you can be flying high knowing you can still be a good listener and letting your friend or family member know you care by offering supportive words. Just tell them, they can do it, anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
