Broken Up Before New Year’s Eve: Should I Tell My Friends?
There is never a good time to tell anyone bad news, but most people think it is better to just tell it right away. The longer people let bad news stew in their minds, the worse it gets. So, if you have had a break up just before New Year’s Eve – one of the most fun nights of the year – you should tell your friends right away.
Tell Your Friends Immediately
If you have been involved in a break up, one of the first things you should do is tell your friends, especially your best girlfriends. A woman needs her girlfriends because they are there for support, so when you are going through something as painful as a break up, your friends will help you through the whole thing. Many women do not understand the power of a good group of girls and if they have one, they should certainly not take that group for granted by keeping secrets like a big break up.
Share the News and Share Time Together
It is best to share the break up news with your best girls right away, even if you are afraid that it will spoil the fun of New Year’s Eve. If you have been in a break up, you certainly will not be any fun during the night, so it is best to share your news and let your girls help make the night the best it can be. You should not be at home sulking on New Year’s Eve either, so by letting your girlfriends know about your situation, you are helping yourself get over the break up and get on with your life.
The Girls Make Things Better
There are many women who would be disappointed that their friends would be afraid to confide in them about something like a break up. Women are a powerful group of people who really do support each other when the time comes. Friends want to help their friends and if a woman is too afraid to tell her girls about a bad break up, because she is afraid of ruining New Year’s Eve, many women would find that to be ridiculous. There is a New Year’s Eve every year, but there are only so many special friends in a woman’s life and those friends are more important than one day out of the year. And, many women would be happy to make changes to her plans to include another friend.
Put Yourself in Their Shoes
If you are sulking and worrying about telling your friends about a break up, think about how you would feel if your friends did not tell you about a similar situation. You would certainly prefer to support your friends if they needed it. Think of how it will feel when you finally do tell your friends about the break up and when they ask, “When did it happen?” and they realize that you did not tell them immediately.
