I guess this is why I have so few friends. I dump my problems on everyone and when they do the same I accuse them of overstepping their boundaries and end up making things worse for them.


It’s good that you recognize that pattern. When people unload on me, I remind myself to feel honored by their trust.

Do you accuse them of overstepping their boundaries, or yours?

Some people are naturally good listeners, others have to work at it.

The trick is to have empathy, but not drown in it.
