Things That Every Person Going Through a Divorce Wants to Hear
Advice from our Provo Divorce Lawyers
Sometimes a divorce can end up being the biggest blessing in disguise. However, the end result doesn’t make the journey any easier. It can be hard for friends or family to know what to say in these situations. It is never easy to come up with the right words, especially when you have never been through the situation yourself.
The following is a list of things you can say to your friend that’s going through a divorce to let them know you care.
I’ve got your back.
One of THE most important things you can do to help your friend is to reassure them that no matter what, you’re on their side.
What do you need?
Going through a divorce can be overwhelming. That right there is probably an understatement. There are so many things to do and important things are sure to slip through the cracks. You friend will surely appreciate your help with anything from helping with divorce paperwork to doing their dishes.
Can I be your plus 1?
When you’re married, you have an automatic plus 1 to everything you go to. That changes immediately when you’re going through a divorce and it can seem daunting to go to events alone.
Nothing about going through a divorce is fun or easy. Sometimes having people be constantly positive, saying statements like “it’s going to be fine” might backfire. Sometimes your friend just want to know that you understand how much the situation sucks.
All in all, the best thing you can do for your friend at this time is to listen and be aware of their situation.
