Suggestions for support.
Boy friend was just demoted at work. His identity is really tied up in his position. I recognize that I am not a very supportive person and have a tendency to say stupid things. This was a very huge devastating unforeseen blow to my friend and I am having trouble coming up with supportive things to say. I usually just sit there and listen to him vent, but I don't feel that I am really doing much. I know there is really not a lot more to offer, but any suggestions would be appreciated.
