7 Ways to Help a Friend Get Over a Breakup
When a friend goes through a breakup, it can feel hard to know exactly how to support her. You want to be a good friend and help her heal, but you don’t know what to say or do.
It’s not surprising that you feel this way.
When your BFF is hurting, you want her to feel better, to be happy and confident again. But healing from a breakup is complicated. It’s not like she can just flip a switch and feel better tomorrow—it takes time for those emotions to show up and pass by. And when you’re in the middle of it, it doesn’t always seem like there’s a path forward.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do as a friend that will help her cope during this challenging time.
To help ease some of your concerns and stress about your friend, here are 7 ways to help a friend get over a breakup:
- Don’t push for details …. unless she wants to share them.
- Ask her how she’s feeling and listen.
- Encourage her to take care of herself.
- Give her space when she needs it.
- Remind her that she is not alone and be there for her.
- Help her come up with an action plan and support her to follow through on it.
- Send a breakup gift.
Breakups are a hard thing to get over, especially if the breakup wasn’t handled well. There are so many emotions that bombard you and get you off balance and that could shake your confidence.
