Being a good friend: how to be supportive through a terrible breakup

Watching a friend go through a bad breakup is never easy. Your loyalty to your friend will make you feel like gorging his eyes out while you are at the same time, trying to ease the pain she is going through.

What could even make this more difficult is that she may be taking out her pain on you. You had nothing to do with it yet she seems to be attacking you but it will take a great deal of maturity to understand that she is not angry with you but the guy who left her, and probably herself for not seeing it coming. She just needs someone to take it out on.

So, how best can you be there for her?

1. Reassure her

Even if you saw it coming or have always warned her that he is a jerk, this is not the time to rub it in. Instead, tell her that it is not her fault. Help her understand that she shouldn’t blame herself because someone has chosen to be a jackass to her.

2. Encourage her

Paint a picture of what her life is going to look like without him. Encourage her and tell her that she will rock without his baggage and this is time for her to explore and enjoy being single.

3. Keep her in check

Inasmuch as you should be gentle with her, you should also be firm when she decides to do something crazy like begging him, stalking him on social media or wrecking his house.

4. Tell her to cut him off

If he gave her the lame line about staying friends, advise her to cut him off from her life completely. At that time, she may think that it is a good idea, but convince her that considering the way they broke up, it is unhealthy for her emotional stability. She should set boundaries.

I have more tips to help you be the friend that your friend deserves.
