Not Everything Needs A Response

In a conversation, it’s common to feel like you need to respond to everything the other person says. And your friend will say a lot. She’ll say some things that sound concerning. She may not sound like herself. She may sound very negative or even delusional at times. But this is the process. She doesn’t need you to agree with, disagree with, affirm or deny everything she says. This isn’t really a conversation – it’s a monologue. If you feel you need to respond to everything, the chances you say the right thing every time are very, very small.
