BE EM­PA­THETIC

“Seek first to un­der­stand and then to be un­der­stood,” Ul­brick ad­vises. Be “stew­ards” of each other’s brains, she says. “Un­der­stand where the other per­son is com­ing from. Know their trig­gers and don’t pull them. If you can, get to know how to soothe the trig­gers,” she ad­vises.

This might be step­ping back, a pat on the shoul­der, or sim­ply giv­ing the other per­son some space.
