try counteract your negative thoughts into positive thoughts and project it to your friends. maybe confine in your friends.some people find it easier to talk to others who are going through the same situation.and you feel you can relate and understand them more and you could eventually help each other out. be kind to yourself also. the world's a harsh place but your here for a reason and if you have that helping heart in you that could be your calling!!! it could help yourself at the same time x good luck on your journey. spread the love and kindness remember your unique...you are the only you in this world after all x

whatever you do, don't put their pressures on yourself. it's one thing to be concerned and want to help, it is another to compromise your own wellbeing. you're clearly a nice person because you want to help just be careful not to pick up their burden

talk to them. just come at them from a place of kindness and try to understand what's going on. let them understand that you're going through the same thing. they'll relate to that take care of yourself first
