"My best friend, who was there for me before my beloved died, no longer talks to me or avoids me. Why can't my friend support me?"

Sometimes friends and family do not know what to say or are afraid they will do or say the wrong thing, so they avoid the situation altogether.  Often they are not sure how to support you.  It may help to think of some ways, both concrete (such as preparing a meal) and emotional, that your friends can help you.  Then talk to your friends about your friendship, and let them know how they can support you.
