When a friend tells you she is pregnant, how can you be there for her?
She tells you because she trust you. She hopes that a conversation with you can help in someway. Whether its to just get the words out or perhaps she thinks you have suggestions that can help. It doesn’t matter why she told you, it just matters that you are there to hold her hand, to help in any way you can.
So, how can you help?
Tell her she has time to make life altering decisions. Even though the timing might be hard and your friend isn’t ready to be a mom, she still has time to make decisions and taking the time to make choices will only yield more positive results. A rash and rushed choice can easily turn into regret for decades.
Listen to her. She has fears and concerns. A friend who listens is a friend who is helping.
