Instead of saying "I've had it worse" - try saying, "I've been in a similar situation and it was rough."

Instead of saying "You shouldn't feel....." - try saying, "I don't blame you for feeling..."

Instead of saying "It's not a big deal" - try saying, "I can see why you feel that way."

Instead of saying "I don't understand, just get over it" - try saying, "I can't imagine what you're going through."
