Going through a divorce is stressful. Even if your loved one looks like they’re holding it together, they might be struggling to adapt to the end of their relationship and beginning of a new, solo journey.
As a friend or family member, the best thing you can do for a loved one going through a divorce is simply be there and remind the divorce(e) they are loved and appreciated. While your presence might not be able to put an end to the pain they are experiencing, it can help push aside fears and anxiety.
Laughter can also help those going through divorce, so if you think your friend would be up for a divorce party, you might want to consider throwing one.
