Ask how they feel post-breakup; let them steer the talk. Offer choices to help or sit with them. Patiently support their process.
Empathize genuinely, validate emotions. Recognize pain, offer acknowledgment. Simple acts hold impactful support.
After my breakup, a friend's simple company helped. Experts agree, showing up matters. Check-ins, social plans, or movie nights can comfort.
Avoid bold assumptions after a breakup; they worsen pain. Anger and love can coexist. Steer clear of negative or definitive statements, they fuel hurt.
Rushing post-breakup healing hinders grieving. Give space to cope before discussing future relationships. Timing is key for hope and new connections.
Support means not blaming them for the past. Snap judgments don't help; listen and be there instead. It's about understanding, not criticism.
