Take the time to really listen to your friends and coworkers.
It's easy to brush off suggestions or concerns from the people around you when you're already preoccupied with your own responsibilities. But, it's important not to get too wrapped up in your own world that you completely alienate yourself or push your loved ones away.
Follow Abby's lead and take the time to hear what your friends, family, and coworkers have to say. Who knows, while you're helping them process their quandaries, you might find a solution to your own!
