Ok so thing is my buds bro died and it wasn't too far from where I live he got shot by some gang members and thing is he wasn't asking for it he just went to his car to get a cellphone battery and got shot and died,and well I feel bad about him losing his bro is there anything that I can do to like ease the pain or distract him from it or something?And this is the first time I've seen it on the news so kinda weird seeing it on there.
when you lose someone close to you, theres really nothing anybody can do to ease the pain.. and theres no way to distract him.. the only thing you can do, is be there for him, and make sure he knows you're available if he needs to talk.. in most cases, he'll come to you if he knows you're there.. what I'd definately do though, is offer to help out with things.. for instance, if the family comes from out of town, offer for him to stay with you so they've got extra room.. little things like that mean a lot.. you don't even have to say anything to him when you're around.. just your presence will make him feel better.
When someone close dies its only normal for someone to feel, sad, detached from that person, when a really close person of mine died all I wanted was to crawl into hole and wait for the pain to go. But when I told my friends, they supported me and it felt nice knowing people care, just make sure that your friend knows that your their for him, and just hangout like what friends do.
When someone loses someone close to them, there's nothing you can do but let him heal by himself. Just let him know that you're there for him.
for him to get over it..he needs someone to talk to about it...but I guess if you want to distract him..just hang out
I say just tell him that if there is anything you can do for him and let him know that you are there 4 him
