hey Sup Forums if you want to take a break from the degenerate porn threats i got this issue going on and could really use some advice

pic related but not to me
i shit you not is for a friend
lets call him joe

you see i first encounter this image browsing the wonderful world of the internet and even though i can find some of this somewhat relateble, all i could see while looking at this picture was joe, someone i know from when we were kids, someone i smoked my first joint with, my best friend,

well inevitably joe came across this image and immediately sent it to me, laughing because how relatable it was.

i felt so fucking bad, i tried to tell him is not so bad and that he has real friends an a nice GF and some other bullshit, that of course didn't help and turned what was supposed to be a funny meme into a cringe fest.
the thing is Sup Forums i see joe suffering and hiding his pain with humor

he has everything one can wish for, a good wealthy family, a well paid job, awesome car, a beautiful girlfriend, and a group of close friends yet he feels empty and depressed, and he knows he has no reason whatsoever to feel this way but he can't help to feel like this, so he gets mad at himself which only makes it worse

and the worst part is that i am aware of all this but i have no idea how to help, talking and reaching out ends in avoidance and a "don't worry about me bro, i'm fine"

so now i come to you

He needs an SSRI for his brain to restore proper serotonin levels. That or psychedelics like mushrooms or acid.

I say this OP because both mushrooms and prozac helped me a lot. But the prozac keeps me steady, while mushrooms make me feel great for 2 weeks after the trip is over, I have heard of microdosing which I haven't tried cause I'm on prozac now.

Ayden Garcia

Maybe he should look for an expert, receive therapy, it doesnt always work but he should try anyways...he's wealthy after all so I guess that money isnt a problem...anyways, I think that this kind of stuff happens to people that dont think about what they really want in life, people that dont take some time to think about what they are truly achieving with their actions and if those actions are meaningless or not etc

Like I said, prozac helped me, and I think it would work even better if your life is already together, but I'm no doctor of course.

Shit didnt read this while writing my answer, pills are the easy "solution" to a patient's troubles...maybe you should make an effort to help that friend of yours user, talking could do, its not the end of his life he just needs to find what he really wants, being a succesful guy is not the same as being happy

Chase Morales

yeah, i guess i could try and talk to him in person, the problem is even after a deep felt talk things around his life don't really change, and at some point there is a limit to what i can do you know?

ngl the shrooms idea is not that bad, i could convince him to take some with me as a tripsitter seeing as how i how i have tried them before i can maybe guide the ride

Owen Gonzalez

Maybe he should see a...frontier psychiatrist

Easton Mitchell

Tell him to try a journal. Make at least one entry a day for a few months.

Ethan Hall

does that help?

Ayden Cook

My guess is the pressure of expectation he needs to keep up for the people around him. So in return he leaves himself behind. He is not fulfilled in his own seflish desire.

Jaxson Diaz
Jaxson Diaz

Yep there's a limit OP, you cant do everything for him, because he has to be strong enough to change a lot of things in his life, his battle...btw I dont know a lot about shrooms and drugs but isnt there a risk of adiction? You dont mix drugs with depression

Gavin Flores
Gavin Flores

shrooms aren't addictive, in fact the more frequent you use shrooms the less it has an effect on you and is basically eating shit for nothing

Fuck that image almost made me cry. Too close to home my dude.
Honestly I wish I had half of what Joe's got. You should ask him to share why hes feeling so down

Dominic Cooper

tbh OP
I am like your friend and he does not view you as a friend
he secretly despises you, because he hates himself

Oliver Adams

OPhere
sorry if i made you feel bad, the image was just part of the story.
to answer your question i have asked him, and he says he dosen't know why, he knows he shouldn't feel that way because he has no reason to, so he gets mad that he does

Jackson Jones

Adam Turner

I just learned this lesson recently, so I can't offer a clear solution. The problem is instead to solve his issues he distracted himself. Money, a relation ship is a good tool for distraction. What I find interesting is his dream to be a youtuber or a comedian. So in a way he is looking for appreciation from others. I have more thoughts but it's hard to put into words because I don't speak English very often. Anyways, your a great friend to him.

Cameron Powell

some of us are just to damaged OP
I don't know what your friend went through to get him this way, but most likely it was trauma inflected as a toddler age range 1-3
at least that's what happened to me.

best advice I can give is to give into his sarcastic dark humor and share in his hatred
that will earn his trust, then take it from there?

It's hard to help when I don't know him.
He has a gf friends and everything? I don't get what he is bitching about that tbh I would kill for that

i think i've mention the fact that he knows he has no reason to feel like this is part of the problem, and well i think i have hes trust as much as he's got mine, the issue is how i can express my concern and willingness to help without him backing off or me pushing too much where i shouldn't and become annoying for lack of a better word

Jacob Jackson
Jacob Jackson

to be honest the best i've got out of this is the shrooms idea

Logan Gonzalez

No need to apologize, it is what it is. Maybe is right. Maybe you just gotta tell him that you're proud of him or that you appreciate him or something. Dont mean to sound like a little bitch, but one time while drinking with a friend, I remember my friend just saying 'well, I'm proud of you bro' after I had gone through a really rough time in my life. Made me tear up hearing that. You see, I went through a really rough period of my life and once I fixed my situation through hard work, I still didnt feel good. Maybe hearing that he was proud of me made me feel like my efforts werent in vain. I dont know. Then again, I also feel I'd kill for close friends, a gf, some extra money, and all that. It's really hard for me to sympathize with people who have it all but are still sad.

Xavier Wood

tbh i feel it is like a life lesson seeing people like that, because is human nature to be unhappy no matter how much of our desires we fulfill it will never be enough

Ethan Wood

Maybe. I had all those things once though and remember being pretty fucking happy. So I dont know.

thanks, i think i'll try that, most men now a days don't get enough possitive comments, a simple "im proud of you" or a "you're doing a great job" could make a difference

that and the shrooms idea

Robert Brooks
Robert Brooks

he has a lack of respect for you
his world is suffering and you haven't showed yourself capable of it
is it lame?
yeah...
just keep that in mind with him, he is a tester and people always fail

Jace Mitchell
Jace Mitchell

I think the first step is to embrace him with his problem. He needs to be AWARE or his own selfish desires. Why didn't he create a YouTube channel or get into comedy? Because he was lazy? No time? No money? My guess, he is afraid of failure. Kinda obvious. He is looking for appreciation and a way to proof him self to be worth something. Because he himself feels worthless. And many people feel like this. The key is to find worth in yourself, without any tools to proof your worth.
