My friend told me he sometimes goes out to a field and beats himself in the legs and abdomen. He said that he does it because he needs to be punished and also because it gets out a lot of his anger. The other day we were playing a video game and he was getting really mad so he went into his closet and pulled out a long cardboard box and beat it against the wall for about 10 seconds. He said that he kept it because he used it for that type of thing. It was half laughing and half anger. I am a genius, and I think he is about 10 pegs above me, so I just have a hard time giving him advice because he is so smart. I think mostly he is alone, and I feel like I cant help him because I cant relate to his intelligence as much. Any advice?
 
Maybe just letting him know constantly but not too much tht you are there for him if he ever needs a hand because this probleme is not easyto beat the feeling of reliefe that comes after hurting oneself is so southing ..it really has to be him in a way that decides that makes the final decision on wether to stop but you can tell him your point of vieu from time to time tell him that it worries you and soon he will realise that it not only impacts his way of life but others as well just let him know that you are there and if he can't oen up to you or any of his other friends there is other resoources at his disosal remind him that there is always help when he is ready for it it will be there and that sometime are harder than others

People’s Best Friend by Bruce Roney, Ottawa Humane Society Sept 2, 2021 When you hear “service dog” what do you think of? I imagine a guide dog helping his owner safely navigate a busy intersection, or those ubiquitous plastic dogs in supermarkets accepting change to support Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. But in reality, service dogs fill many roles — some of which may surprise you. Hearing dogs assist people who are deaf or have auditory impairment. These dogs alert their owners to...

Yes exactly. We already have way too many abandoned cats and dogs on the streets. We don't need any more temporary pet owners.

My bud read the post and comments and replied last night. I then asked if he had any objection to me posting his response as it was quite touching. He told me if that is what I wanted to do then he has no objection. The reason I felt it important to share it is that I, just like many of us that have "issues", often feel like I'm only a burden on my friends. But I guess a true friend seems to have the ability to see us beyond more than our issues. Here was his response after reading the...

Since I've been on Facebook, I've also recontacted friends, people I went to school with or worked with in the past, some that I hadn't heard from in many years. I've learned to like that part of it as well.

This one is a touch long...but I really like it because it's comforting for those of us who feel a little too "imperfect"...it's by George Eliot. " A friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together knowing that gentle hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness... blow the rest away." :heart: ---------- Post Merged at 11:41 AM ---------- Previous Post was at 11:40 AM ---------- Oh dear...that poor...
