Her Childhood Friend's Expected Death

Postby NewPath » Sun Dec 09, 2012 12:25 pm

My girlfriend was informed this morning about the death of her childhood friend. She had come back from visiting him in Spain last week. How do I comfort her? Seeing her in pain is breaking my heart.

I think you are in shock, too. That is normal with the unexpected death of loved ones. Being there for her is the best thing you can do for now. She needs someone to lean on, so be that person for her.

She is still in shock but I have recovered a little bit from the news. Your advice hits the right points. That is all we can do in times like this.

That is sad. Try to be with her as much as you can. Hug her and let her cry on your shoulders. Hugs really help someone who is in pain. Also, be a good listener. Don't say much and just listen to her. Offer advice when she asks for it.

This happened 3 weeks ago. How is your girlfriend now? I hope she's already okay. If she's still hurting so much, try to entertain her. Think of some fun things that you could do together, to get her mind off her friend's death.

This reminds me of my childhood best friend. He was my first best friend. When my family was just new in our old neighborhood, he was the first kid that approached me. He was a big kid and the other kids at school were afraid of him, that's why no one picked on me even if I was 'the new kid.' He died in a car crash when we were in high school. I was devastated when that happened. He was more than a best friend to me. We were like real brothers. It took me a long time to recover. The presence of my family and other friends helped a lot.

Always make yourself available to your girlfriend. Your mere presence would help her a lot.

How come I missed this thread when I was new here? Ugh!

Anyway, how is your gf now? It's been several months after her friend died. Hope she's fine now.
