I have not used this website before but someone linked it to me, sorry if I do something wrong. But I am wondering what I can do for my friend. She has had a rough life, her mom was and is hurt some days. She is worried about friends leaving or changes or herself changing. I texted her back but she never texted back. I don’t know how to comfort her. I feel she lets her anger off at me. I tell her I care about her. She says she wants to die and she hates her family. She also may be sick, I am not sure if she wants rest or not. Sorry for my trash organization of this post and probably trash grammar. Thank you for reading! Gb!
Thank you for posting. I think the best you can do for you friend is to go with her to sit down and talk. She may release some of her anger at you so please be ready for it. The best way you can prepare for that is to realise that she is in pain and she needs to release it. Dont be defencive. If she tells you something like “I hate you” tell her “I am sorry if I did something to hurt you but I care about you.” She does not want to hurt you she just wants the pain to stop.
Try to be there for her. Check up on her from time to time if she is ok. (From time to time does not mean every hour or every five minutes dont be creepy about it ). Try to go out with her or invite her to some activities she might enjoy. Be patient with her she will not improve in a day. When you feel like she is comfortable enough around you talk to her about seeing a doctor about her mental health. Dont say things like she is crazy or something. Show concern and support but dont be pushy about it.
Thats the best advice i can give. Hope it helps.
Hi @BroerDJG Its lovely to meet you, welcome.
I cant say more than than @Ashwell he has covered what I would have said to you and then some, I just wanted to say what an amazing friend you are for doing this for your friend and depending on how you think she would react ( I don’t want you to upset her more than she already is) maybe give her the details of this site?
it is just another thought of a way for her to gets her thoughts out if she wanted to.
I wish you luck and again thank you for being a wonderful friend. I wish everyone had someone like you.
