A few things to think about before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person or show off how aware I am of social issues?
✅ Am I about to say "Are you surprised?" when someone is disappointed?

Do you know why meditation is so effective?
The lack of thinking.
Thinking is something that takes energy. It also has a chemical effect on your brain that can drastically alter your mood. Thinking, 24/7, is the best way to stress yourself endlessly.
Stop. Take a deep breath. Open your eyes and look. Don't think about what you're seeing, don't think about what you hear, what you smell, just. Experience it. Breathe in, and out. Listen to the sounds around you.
When speaking with someone, listen to everything they have to say, fully, and /let them finish/ before thinking of a response. You won't interrupt them this way, your thoughts won't get in the way of you understanding them, either.
