Worrying about others’ feelings

I’m assigned to this school working for an outside consulting agency where the teachers are overworked and isolated from management (EARLY EDUCATION TEACHERS are overworked and under appreciated) Any input I give I feel compelled to quickly fix any insecurity I’ve caused. I’m learning it’s not in my hands and I can only try to be as articulate and tactful, with my shortcomings in social skills. *photo of MacBook brick before i soldered (new skill). I still feel bad.

This has been something I’ve been struggling with recently. I think it can be useful to compartmentalize by figuring out a small thing you are willing to help with and leaving it there. For example, reminding someone to stay hydrated is beneficial to both parties! People tend to get cranky and lose coping skills when hungry or thirsty, and suggesting it helps you to not overtax yourself while still helping.
