10 Tips On How To Help A Friend Through A Breakup

A few weeks ago, a close friend of mine told me that she had ended things with her boyfriend of over two years. I felt so sorry for her, and after giving her a hug, I searched for the right words to say… and I searched… and nothing right came out. I was so embarrassed and immediately felt like the worst friend ever. Here she was, confining in me, and here I was, fumbling around with cliche phrases like “you deserve better” and “maybe it’s for the best,” knowing that nothing I was saying could possibly be making her feel better.

It’s hard to help a friend get through a breakup, even if your full-time job is giving advice to girls on how to deal with breakups (cough me cough). When your normally happy best friend is sitting in front of you, heartbroken, it can be really difficult to come up with the right thing to say, or even the right thing to do. I get it. So, I did a little research to help myself, and anyone else dealing with this issue. Here are 10 tips on how to help a friend through a breakup, thus becoming the best friend a girl could ask for.
