What Can You Say?

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?

Tell her that she deserves more.

That the guy is not worthy her tears and stress.

She should thank God for saving her from the Punishment (that Guy).

Therefore she should smile that Jesus loves her.

I think the poster needs more thoughts on this because it sounds like a serious issue.

Actully Seun for me that is what has kept me from doing it myself. Thinking of how selfish it would be to my children to do that.

I personally dont think suicide is selfish. I think its shocking that someone hits so low they feel they need to kill themselves its truely awful.

Nothing you can say. Its amazing what time can do. Its hurts so much now but in a few months the pain will lessen.

I would just reason with her that taking her life is selfish.  It is selfish to all those left behind and taking her life is not going to get that man back.

My god i have so been there where she is right now.  When my 5 year relationship ended I thought the world was going to crash in on me (I loved that man more than my ex-husband).  But it gets better, it really does.  What pulled me thru my darkest times were/are my children w/o them i honestly dont know where i would be today.

She will be in my prayers

It's what you do, not what you say. Just be there for her, that's all. Being there is under-rated.
