Words not to say to a divorced mom
A friend of mine just got divorced. She has 2 boys, age 10 and 6. She decided to share her life story with me and we talked about 2 hours, and during our conversation I am always asked myself:"What kind of words should I use in order to help her emotionally?"
I can imagine what living with the “D” word feels like. From my point of view, do not say things like" What happened?"-you already know, right?
Do not see your friend differently now-for example, she is a single mom now, she needs to find a man, I am a Christian person and she got divorced so I cannot be her friend anymore... This is our life, I know she tried her best to save her family...God knows her heart, and I have no right to judge.
Or such things as "Good for you; men are useless anyway!":)))), ""How are you going to take care of your family now?"
