Lean On Me: Lean on Friends and Family After a Break Up
After a break up, you may not know where to turn or what to do. The best thing that you can do is to lean on your friends and family. These are the people that you can count on after a break up. It’s amazing that after any kind of major catastrophe, your friends and family will stick by you. This is the time to strengthen your bonds with the people who love you the most. You learn to value your friendships and you realize how close you and your family truly are.
Sometimes you may be worried about what your friends and family will think about the break up, but don’t be. These people love you and will not judge you. No matter what happened in the break up, don’t worry about your friends or family criticizing you. Remember all of the times that you have been there for your loved ones. People like to feel like they are needed, so let them know how they can help you.
If for some reason, you don’t feel like your family will be there for you, lean on your friends. Everyone has different circumstances in their life and sometimes your family unit is not what you had hoped and wished for. If this is the case, then your friends are the people that you should look to for guidance, love and understanding. You have, no doubt, been there for your friends in their time of need. Now do yourself, and them, a favor by letting them repay the kindness.
This is a time when you find out who your true friends are in life. A lot of people will step up to the plate and be there for you when you need them the most. You may be surprised at a few friends who take a step back or seem to be MIA. If this is the case, be glad that you discovered that these are not the people you thought they were, and that you found out now, instead of later.
You will find that during times of tragedy, your friends and family will stand up and help you get over the pain and agony that you are going through. It will strengthen bonds between you and your friends and family for the rest your life. If there’s one thing you will learn during this sad time, it is that goodness always shows up, sometimes in the darkest places.
