Things to Help a Friend Through a Breakup

If Your BFF Is Going Through a Breakup, Here's How You Can Actually Help Her

Seeing your best friend go through a difficult breakup is one of the toughest things to witness. You want to do everything you can to help them through it, but sometimes, it seems like you've exhausted all your options. Although the ideas ahead won't exactly cure a broken heart, they'll make it a hell of a lot easier to get their mind off the ex. Completely distracting her won't do any good, however.

Check out the following 25 things you can do for her and with her to make this breakup a little more bearable.
