10 ways to Cheer up a Friend when They Go Through a Breakup
Relationship and breakups are the two sides of a coin. If relationship exists, we cannot deny the existence of breakups as well in our life. However, a breakup cannot be the end of the world as life exists after that also.
While going through a tough phase of breakup we need our friends more at our side. Learn here 10 ways to cheer up a Friend when they go through a breakup.
Understand your friend's need
Different people possess different personalities. Some people prefer a friends’ party or some people prefer quiet conversation with best friends. Learn about your friend’s need. Arrange support for him accordingly. It will work for him as his mental tonic and he will be able to gain his mental balance.
Keep focus on your friend
Do not analyze the situation. Take a note that your friend must be in bad shape of mind due to this breakup. Help him to cope with the crisis. Never ever try to advise him on the situation. You can try to support him but never try to intrude in the issue.
Do not criticize
It is understood that something was wrong in the relationship that is why the break up took place. But you must not pass your opinion on this issue. It is a sentimental issue and your friend needs your support. Regardless of the fact whether he is right or wrong, be at his side and try to console him.
Show him the positive aspect
Although it may sound odd but try to show your friend the positive side of the break up. Everything can be explained in both positive and negative aspects. Try to explain the positive aspects of this breakup. Although baseless, this consolation will like an ointment on the grief stricken heart of your friend.
Understanding the complexity of the situation
A break up is not only a relationship break up, a break up is the termination of a social alliance. In most of the cases it revolves around family matters and family members. It is wise not to peep into family matters. You must try to learn the situation from your friend. But it will not be just to enter the scene with negotiation offer.
Spend quality time with your friend
Spending quality time means enjoying some good moments with him. These moments may not be productive in terms of materialistic success, but it will cheer him up. If possible arrange for a small outing where lots of physical exercise is involved. The strenuous workout will help him to face the reality.
Never ever try to speculate
It is again unfair to comment on the issue. Never allow him to be in negative mood but never assure him that everything will be back at its old stage. Rather allow your friend to face the reality. Never speculate for him a rosy picture. Time is the best healer so it will heal your friend’s agony as well.
Love him unconditionally
Sincere love has its own gestures which comforts even the most bereaved man in his worst agony. This is called emotional support with which he can cross the toughest time of his life. If he feels that you love him, he can unwind his problems with you. Once he opens his mind, he is going to recover the issue very soon.
A break up is a kind of failure. It spoils the self esteem of the involved person. As a friend you must know the positive quality of your friend. Bestow lots of compliments on him. This will elate him for sure. His affected self esteem will be revived in this course. He will feel happy and energized. This freshness of mind will help him to overcome the stress and tension caused by the break up.
Laugh a lot
It is the easiest way to cheer your friend. There is nothing sweeter than the smiling face of a friend amidst crisis. Lots of laugh over the crisis is the best antidote for feeling good. However it’s not your battle but it is the problem of your friend. Never try to put foot in his shoe. Do not try to negotiate or discuss the issue with other friends.
There is no specific formula to cheer your friend. You have to read his mind or at least you should try to understand his dilemma. You must not discuss about your troubled relationship, if any; rather you must focus on your friend and his tension. Time is the best healer; when your friend will be back on his own state of mind he will be cheered by his own.
