I have this friend who is consistently, and increasingly down. Quite literally, every time we speak he is more depressed than the last time. This really bothers me. I wish I could help. But how does one help someone else when they refuse to see anything positive in their life? He cannot, or will not admit to having one positive aspect to his life.
This is so emotionally draining! One the one hand I want to help, but on the other I just want to avoid all contact.
