if someone who is really going through tough times right now cries on your shoulder about their life and lets it all out, what should you say to them? what if the person is always one of those optimistic, happy people who are just all of the sudden revealing how depressed they feel and how disappointed they are with their lives? this kinda happened to me. at first i said that everything was going to be alright. then they just let it all out and i kinda didn't know what to say so i didn't say anything cuz i didn't want to say the wrong thing and make things worst. i felt like i was wrong for that. but i guess i was thinking about my situation cuz when i down on my luck i really don't want people who have no idea how i feel telling me its going to be ok cuz people say that alot and it loses its validity after a while even if its true. i just wish a had a real solution to the problem but its one of those thing where you really have to suffer the consequences of your actions sometimes. but was my silence wrong and if so what should i say if this happens again?
