Three Great Gifts You Can Give Your Divorcing Friend This Holiday Support in a Split, sponsored by ARAG When you get together with your friends and family this holiday, your friend who is going through a split will bring lots of emotions to the table. Whether he or she is hurting or ready to move on and celebrate, here are three special gifts you can give. Give empathy. The holidays don’t trump life, in fact, they often complicate it. When life is riddled with loss, change and conflict, the holidays don’t wait for healing. Because this may be a difficult time for anyone facing the loss of his or her marriage, giving the gift of empathy can help you build a more meaningful and trusting relationship. Remember that it’s not necessary to have shared the same experience in order to understand another’s feelings. While you may not have experienced divorce, you may have experienced other loss. Try to identify the feelings of sadness, anger, displacement and fear you may have felt heading into a holiday that would be so different than others you’d known. By identifying those feelings, then you can likely empathize with another. Give perspective. Your friend in need may be in the midst of her own personal winter and the warmth of spring may seem beyond her reach. You can help your divorcing friend stay inspired and imagine a fulfilling life. Find positive role models – or be one – by encouraging him or her to adopt positive lifestyle changes and enjoy the freedom. Give kindness. “Nice” and “Divorce” aren’t usually two words you hear in the same sentence. Yet “nicer” divorces are a growing trend for a few good reasons. For starters, they generally can be handled more quickly and consequently, less expensively. They also leave fewer battle scars for everyone involved. As the friend of someone who is getting divorced, you play a big role in helping your friend “play nice” during divorce. Encouraging him or her to stay nice helps your friend’s health, limits negative feelings for any children involved and allows for less anger in the future. By being kind, your friend decides to take advantage of this new opportunity to have a second chance at a wonderful life. In a season of hope and new beginnings, what better gift could you offer?
