Concern for a loved one may dampen your spirit.
This is one of those times when you can step aside and let everyone else deal with it. It's not your drama, you didn't create it. Let them have it all to themselves. You've got better things to do with your time and emotions. Don't allow yourself to be held captive by their demands and don't take sides if you can avoid it. Your time is better spent elsewhere doing more productive things.
Energy and optimism. These two characteristics can also help you gain someone's confidence and approval when arguing your point or idea.
