Hey people. I have a relatively close friend who was dating this guy. For a number of reasons, I never really liked her boyfriend and I spoke to some of our friends about it and they felt the same way about it. So we tried to talk to her about him and let her know we don't like him but she read it to mean we were hating on their relationship and wanted to tear them apart.
Gradually, her friendship with the rest of us started to wear out. Soon, we never saw her at any of the events we usually went to together and stuff and the only news we'd hear about her is what others told us. I knew exactly what was going on; she had allowed that dude to control her but I couldn't do anything about it except pray for the best for her. Soon enough as you would guess, he broke up with her after 8 months of their relationship. She called last evening begging me to spend the night. It was awkward because this was someone would I hadn't spoken to for a while.
Anyway, I went there and started consoling her while she went on and on about how silly she felt and how the guy didn't like us and how she tried to make him happy. I completely understood how she felt until she said she that with all the pain she's feeling inside, she might as well take her life. I was scared for her and did not trust her alone so I moved her to my apartment with some of her stuff and my friends and I have been trying to reason with her and care for her.
So, what exactly can you say to someone who's going through an emotional crisis like this?
