help someone feel better


1. Make it clear right up front that you really want to help.

2. Make it clear the other person is in control.

3. Show intense interest and concern about her situation — the circumstances.

4. Try your best to sincerely empathize.

5. Make it clear you are available to listen, no matter what the person says.

6. Demonstrate you are on their side, but not by criticizing anybody else.

These principles are from the article, How to Make Someone Feel Better.
