My husband who is bipolar is going through a situation right now that I cannot help him with - partially because he does not want to listen and partially because I don't know what to say. We have a friend, he is in his mid 20's and we are in our 40's. He is a great guy, although young, he has a lot of experience and a lot of share. We have become quite good friends with him, he helped us move, we have borrowed money from him and he does not want it back and he has been over even late at night just to talk and have coffee and/or a meal with us. This guy from the beginning has said he does not like it in Florida and wants to move back to the state he is from. Lately he talks about it all the time, about how he misses his friend and family. My husband is now saying he no longer wants to talk to our friend and has told him so (although he saw him a few days ago - now it is over). Our son (14 years old) really likes this guy as a friend as he is closer to his age. My husband is saying that because of past things that have happened how he lost friends, he does not want to get hurt again. How can I get him to understand that he and this guy really need each other and should remain friend until he leaves (or not) and even afterwards.
