Are you the amateur psychologist in the office?

Question: “I’ve slowly realized that I’m the person everyone comes to when they want to talk about life outside the office, their personal problems, their traffic woes, their relationship headaches … I don’t mind, but I think I’d like to very slowly give up that role. Does anyone have any tips on how I might do that without shutting anyone down directly? These are all nice people and I like them a lot; I just want to focus on myself and the job more.” – Cassidy, Test Prep Assistant
