If you're having problems with your girlfriend, specifically, what to do if my girlfriend wants to run away from her problems, please read on. She may just need you to be there for her and, if that’s the case, here are some steps you can take, to help her out.
- Let her know that you will always be there for her and support her. Sometimes people just need to know they have someone there for them. If your girlfriend wants to run away from her problems, reinforce that you will be there for her no matter what she decides, and that you stand behind her decisions.
- Do something with her to divert her attention for a while. Take her out somewhere new, take her on a vacation, or maybe just away from the thing she is worrying about. Getting away from things may help her think and figure out ways to handle her problems. A nice get away can be the very thing someone needs to face their problems.
- Help her face her problems. Maybe she’s not brave enough, or ready to face her problems. Keep your girlfriend from running away from her problems by offering to help her deal with them. You may be able to help her overcome some things.
- Give her monitored space to think. She may need some space to think and be alone, at the same time you should not leave her completely alone because in her frame of mind she may do something unexpected and drastic. Keep an eye on her, this could be as simple as checking on her every now and then, or calling her to make sure she’s okay.
- If she’s spiritual, suggest that she connect to her spiritual side. Now more than ever, people are turning to spirituality to assist with life and coping. If she’s spiritual then suggest she connect with her spirituality or even offer to worship with her. If she’s not spiritual, then suggest she look into becoming more spiritual or invite her to worship with you.
