Why do we need to talk to a friend?
And what if he doesn’t understand?…
At some point in life, a person becomes frustrated and suffocated that no one is there for him and no one wants to talk to him. That is the point where one must take the initiative to talk to a friend, and not only in frustration anytime if one gets a chance, he should talk to a friend to get some clarity of thoughts! What happens is the talk resets the thinking process or way of thinking, and one gets control over their emotions to reason with.
In the current scenario, what happens most often is that a person does not get the chance to express his/her thoughts to anyone. That affects the mental health of a person. so, take a break and have a good talk with your friend, and revive yourself from a stressful day.
Then what to do?
Sometimes, having outing plans like movies, picnics, or playing some sport or any fun activity helps you to resolve the misunderstanding and have some clarity of thoughts.
As the famous quote says, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” the friend is the one who is there for you in your hard times. So if a friend of yours needs any advice or you’d like to give him a suggestion, you should talk to him. There are some points in one’s life when nothing goes as planned, and the person becomes mentally disturbed or very confused.
From what I have experienced, a friend of mine has become socially closed, and gloomy, and has had a change in his nature, and from that, I got that something happened or something is disturbing him.
That’s when I started talking to him to observe rather than directly ask about his state; after a while, he opened up and began talking to me about what was actually on his mind. He was stressed about so many problems, and that led to a frustrating state where small things became irritating to him.
But after opening up to me and just stating his problems to me, he realized that these small things don’t matter and aren’t worth worrying about. So what happened that his concentration that was disturbed because of some problem was regained by him just by talking? And that’s why he got the clarity of his thoughts.
It’s okay if the friend doesn’t understand the whole problem. As long as you get clarity, the therapy works perfectly. That is free therapy.
