When people are considering a break up they may come to you for advice or a shoulder to cry on. It is important to find the right thing to say, so you don’t get the blame for their bad choice later on. If you feel your friend’s partner is a jerk and you share what you really think if they get back together, your relationship with your friend could be extremely awkward in the future.
A good question to ask your friend is if they are happy with themselves outside of the relationship. Your friend needs to consider if they are in a place that they really want it to be and if this relationship of a distraction of a bigger problem? Relationships are supposed to add to your life and make it better not leave you feeling worse.
The only person who knows what’s best for them is the person going through the break-up. Whether your friend decides to stay or go the main thing is to reflect on how they grew as a person while they spent time with their significant other, that way they will frame the relationship as a positive experience no matter what happens.
