How to emotionally connect
I like when people tell me about their problems because I genuinely like to listen and help somehow. I like that they trust me enough to vent and I want to be there for them... Afterwards.. I don't know what to do. Especially with my boyfriend. He doesn't say but I know a part of him is expecting more from me. He wants reassuring words, comfort, nurturing, and I don't know how to do that. It feels like a blockage somewhere and I feel like crying because I can't do anything to help even though I know he's looking for me to provide emotional support. I don't know what to do. Can someone please give me advice?
