My friend's wife was murdered, can you help me help him?!
Question: My friend's wife was murdered, can you help me help him!?
I don't know what to do for him!. Does anyone have any advice on how I can support him, any books they recommend, quotes or similar experience and wisdom I can share with him!. He and I are hardened atheists so I would appreciate some help without religious content (not that I don't respect your right to believe in what you do and appreciate that, it just is not our belief system)!. Thank you!Www@Answer-Health@Com
I think the best thing you can do is just be there for him!. Bring him dinner or get his mail!. Little things like that that show you are there for him!. That's a pretty traumatic experience for him and knowing he has some support will probably mean more to him than you will ever know!. When my grandparents died, the neighbor (who we had never met) came by a few times and offerd to help out, and our family thought the world of him for it because little acts of selflessness make a big difference to people in times of pain and change!. Good luck! You seem to be a good friend!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
if this is very recent it is incredibly hard to say anything right!.!. time will heal but it is always a comfort to know that everything happens for a reason, that each one of us has set a plan aside for ourselves to grow and become a stronger being!. not sure if that was religious or not!.!.!. i believe in multiple lives!. hope all goes well for you and your friend!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
All you have to do is be there for him!. Let him know that!. Let him know that if he needs to talk or cry to call you and your there!. Other then that there isnt really much you can do!. You dont want to push him in to anything!. He'll endup pushing you away!. Just be there!. I hope this helped!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
Just sit with him!.!.!.at this point he just needs to know that his friends are there for him!. All the books I know of dealing with death have religious themes to them so I would suggest a grief counseling group!. Most hospitals have that infoWww@Answer-Health@Com
There is a book "One More Day" that helped me when my brother passed away!. It is about being able to spend one more day with a lost loved one!. It might help, worth a shot in that touchy situation!.!.!.!.!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
I would reccomend him finding something to believe in!. It doesn't have to be God, or even a religion!. It just needs to be something!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
Be supportive!. That's all anyone can do! As an atheist you understand that everyone dies, it's only a matter of timing!. Sorry!Www@Answer-Health@Com
