Stop talking & just listen to me?


When talking to strangers it can be a bit hard knowing what to say, when and how at times. 


But let me give you a tip my friend; If you don’t know what to say in a conversation, try simply reflecting back what you hear from the other person. 


If a new friend at work is upset about a project going wrong, say something like “It sounds like you are really upset about your feedback on that project, paraphrase what they said about their thoughts & feelings about the project.”   If needed then suggest “what things can I help you with?”


Often people simply want to know that their feelings are acknowledged rather than be offered solutions to their problems. 


Doing so also relieves you of the pressure of trying to think of what to say next.
