Personally, this feels weird to me. As a child, I longed for nothing more than for someone to fix the way I was feeling. I felt that only being “understood” was the other person not doing enough.

Now, as an adult, I have to learn to understand this statement as valid. It’s probably better because we shouldn’t be expected to fix others’ problems. It’s unfair to the person with the difficult emotion and the person listening.
