Best friend getting a divorce
Hey guy bad news for me. My best friend who Ive know since grade school just told me today he is getting a divorce. I am completely shocked by it as both he and his wife seem to me to be great people and when i was with them they seemed to get along well however something happened and i dont know what. He did not elaborate much at all just said things were not good and they started to not like each other. I have been here for a while and got to know some of you and you all seem like good guys so i was wondering if you guys cold give me some advice on what to do.
Guys as most of you know i have gone through extremely hard times in my life (brain cancer for example) and got through them all. However ironically because of the attitude and will power I had and have developed from that i dont always do so well helping others.
For me when i had brain cancer my attitude was essentially "Ok this is what we got to do well lets just do it no stalling or complaining or nothing." as well as "there is no way i am going to let this thing beat me and i am going to live!" However i realize that most people dont have this attitude and sometime telling them to act like this just pisses them off and puts them in worse shape.
so guys if you have ever gone through or know someone that has gone through a divorce what do i say to make things better for my friend? What does someone in this position want to hear and what do they need to hear?
basically i told the guy "hey sorry you are going through this and if there is anything you need just ask." Plan on calling and checking up on him asking him to go out and do stuff but i would like some advice on if there is something more i could and/or should do.
