I Want to Help My Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 127 People

    My friend is so depressed,

    and I can't do anything about it. We're both going through the same ****. I promised him to stay up with him till he feels better. I'm worried it won't get better. I really want to help him and be there for him but it's impossible.

    He's 3 years older than me and lives in another country, in fact we get to see each other every summer only. However we talk to each other often and we've also hung out together for a little while. The thing is I'm afraid he's got a serious problem with alcohol. He drinks every...

    I am trying to help

    I'm Desperate...

    I've known my friend for about 6 months. I know it's not so long, but I care very deeply about her. She's been depressed as long as I know her, and recently she told me she'd been sad for about 2 years now. She's having horrible family problems, and she blames herself for...

    I have had class with a girl named "Jenny" (not

    really her name obviously) for the past two years. I am very social and talk to everyone, so to me she was sort of an acquaintance. I liked her, but I legitimately love people to the point that sometimes I could just jump for joy because I met someone new, so I didn't really...

    My Friend'S Relationship Troubles

    My friend has a crush on a guy who is only in a few of her classes. She likes him, but is too shy to say anything. She won't even say stuff like "Hi, I'm ____" as she says, I quote, "That statement is a terrible way to start a conversation, as in this day and age, all guys know...
