  • A customer is unsatisfied.
  • An employee is complaining.
  • A friend is upset.
  • Your sister is angry you don’t see her enough.
  • A gorgeous Italian man is holding a very serious grudge because you denied his advances as you pranced into the sunset before you realized you were very, very stupid, and now you’re begging his forgiveness. (Torturous, I am sure.)

Most of the time, people just want to feel heard and validated. But instead of you stressing over the right way to handle it, sometimes it’s easier to simply ask.
