HomeFriends Relationship QuestionsHow do I give my friend advice about their life?
Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

My best friend is going through a tough time and I want to help her, but I don't want her to think I'm judging her. Her life has been difficult because of her parents but she's also made some bad decisions. I want to help her without making her feel worse.

The most important thing you can do is listen to her and be supportive. Avoid giving unsolicited advice, but if she asks for your opinion, give it to her honestly. Try to be understanding and non-judgmental. Sometimes people just need someone to talk to who will understand and not judge them. Thank her for being a good friend to you and let her know that you are there for her.
