Go and get a life

I know how you feel

“To put yourself in their shoes” is a quiet famous saying. Telling anxious people in order to comfort them that you know how they feel would not help at all since they would be a strong believer of the fact that no one can understand what they are going through, the oceans of feelings that they have to swim through.

You should meditate

Telling them to meditate won’t help rather they will question you of being the one who understood them. They will be reluctant in asking you for help or suggestions. So it would be better to buck them up in what they are aiming for and give them a better outlook on life.
