-You listen and can repeat back what she says
-You don`t try to “fix her problems”, unless she specially asks for a solution.
-You try to identify her feelings
-You never dismiss her feelings, no matter how illogical they may seem to you
-You say: “I appreciate you sharing that with me”
-You don`t interrupt her when she`s trying to tell you how she feels
-You apologize and admit you were wrong
-You cut her some slack during her monthly cycle
-You see something that need to be done and you do it without a lot of hassle
-You express appreciaton for all she does: “honey, I could never do your job”
-You pray with her and for her
