and your only reply is ok.. with no idea what to say after...
In my case in happens to me all the time..
A close friend having problems with her boyfriend asking what to do..
A friend asking for an advise what to do with a certain problem..
A friend dumped by her boyfriend asking for comfort..
And just a few moments ago a friend of mine shared a problem.
And again my reply : ok ... dumbfounded on what to say afterwards..
DAMN! Why the hell am i like that? Why do i suck at words?
I know some find my problem silly or not even a problem at all but I find it frustrating.
I am the kind of person that when a friend of mine share something or some problem to me, I want to reply back something of use.
I want to say something that will help or comfort them but I can't even think or say any thing with relevance to the subject..
For me not saying any relevant things at times like that is like not listening at all. It's like your taking for granted the effort of the sharer. And that you don't understand a thing from your conversation with the sharer..It's like you didn't care at all..
I always listen to the problems of my friends but always fail to reciprocate the communication.
