So I have this friend whose dad just had a heart bypass surgery. He's doing better now. My friend is coming over later to talk about it and vent to me.
I am the least compassionate person in the world. To be honest, I don't care about this. I care about my friend's feelings but I don't care about his situation - nothing that will come out of my mouth will help him. I've never met his dad.
Anyway, I already told him, "I'm here for you, if you need someone to talk to" and all other expected responses. How should I approach the situation later when he's talking about his dad or his feelings? I'm the type of person who just says "Oh ok" when someone talks to me and asks a question to perpetuate the conversation. So what should I do?
