How do I help my severely heartbroken friend
05/29/2012 at 15:50 PM

I have a friend (which is a guy and he's 28 years old). He's the sweetest guy in the world.Sadly he's severely heartbroken because he was
engaged to his fiancee.They were supposed to get married on May 22nd 2012. The night before they were to get married his fiancee decided she didn't want him anymore.She told him she didn't love him anymore and she never did love him and she left him that night. I've never seen my friend cry before but when he called me crying his heart out I went over his house to comfort him. He cried all that night and he even told me the next day that he cried himself to sleep that night.He's still severely heartbroken about what happened to him.He still cries a whole lot and I just don't know what to do. I want to make him feel better but I don't know how. As I said he's the sweetest guy ever and he's my best friend and I can't stand to see him hurting so badly. I try to be there for him and I tell him I'll always be there for him. I also tell he's not alone but that doesn't seem to be helping at all and I don't know what else to do. I'm worried that he's starting to go into depression because he's showing signs of depression,he sleeps all day,he doesn't eat,and he doesn't go out anymore. He doesn't answer my phone calls and he doesn't respond to my text or my emails. He doesn't call me back either. The only way I know what is going on with him is if I call his brother. My friend lives alone and his brother checks on him from time to time since his fiancee left him. I feel there is still something I can do to help him feel better but I don't know what to do.

Does anyone have any advice??

all you can do is be there for him, and if you know any of his other friends mabe talk to them about backing you up in the support process.

Pray for his heart to heal and not harden a thing like that happening could seriously demage a persons heart and cause them to turn bitter, fortuanately God knows how to fix us and you are doing all you can God bless you,xx
