Dunno! - February 22nd 2012, 02:27 AM

One of my friends was raped and is being abused. She told me that her dad took care of it, but I'm still worried and dunno what to do when she talks about it. I tell her that she can always talk to me and I'll be there for her. I also tell her that she can trust me and tell me anything. I just feel useless that I can't do a thing about it....

Hey there,

I think its great that you want to be there for your friend. Its normal that you dont know what to say or do when you talk to her, seeing as (im assuming) youve never been through what she has. However, that doesnt mean you cant help her.. most of the time, just listening could help. Other times, people need someone to cry to and need advice. The best advice i can tell you to give her is to use coping techniques (talk to someone, write, join clubs, etc.) And to keep an open mind and not let this tragedy ruin her entire life. Youre a good friend for being so supportive. Im glad shes out of that situation. I hope youre able to continue being there for her, as its very important to have a friend in this time.

Take care,
Brittany

Thanks, I'll try that! I just found that while I was listening, it didn't seem to help much. I think she has come to terms with her past, but I just wanted to be able to give her the best advice I could provide. Thanks for helping me with that.
