Guest Beth Posted October 1, 2004 Report Share Posted October 1, 2004 My best friends youngest brother has been killed in an ATV accident. It was very sudden and he was only 23.I have been a friend of the family for 25 of the 30 years of my life. The problem is, that I want to be there for my best friend, she is like a sister to me and i would do anything for her. The grief is still very fresh and my friend runs around keeping herslef very busy. I ask her to let me help but sh has built a wall. This is the person I have shared everything with and who has shared a great deal with me. Now, in her pain she has shut me out. So now my friend is not letting me know how she feels and it hurts. Its also hard, because I dont know how to talk to her about how Im feeling. Her little brother was like a little brother to me too...I am grieving for her loss and the loss I also feel. I know I can't give up, and no matter how much she tells me to go away, Im not leaving. Though it may sound selfish of me, I feel as though I am greiving the loss of a friend on top of this terrible tragedy that has befallen her family. What can I do? How can I cope so that I can help her better? Her entire family has kept so busy that Im afraid the full magnitude of the loss hasnt hit them yet. Does anyone have any advice? It hurts to lose someone you care about. It hurts to see come one you love hurt, and it hurts to be pushed away when all you want to do it somehow make it better.Any advice?Beth Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
