saying "x isnt complicated" when somebody is having trouble with x is never helpful and pretty much never true. you just got used to it.

If something actually is simple and the person is just overthinking it, a small "It's actually simple because..." and then explain why something isn't complicated is helpful, at least in my experience. A good(?) example of this is when I was first learning programming the concept of a function baffled me because I was overthinking it, and my teacher was able to show me that it wasn't actually complex like I had originally thought
