Anonymous asked: My best friend is really lacking passion and drive right now. We are juniors in high school. She says that life is one painful, repeating cycle. And in a way she's right- get a job, make other people happy, repeat. She doesn't see the point in it all. I'm so sad for her and at the same time I feel like she's putting into words what eats away at me, too. I don't know where to go from here, how to make sense of it all.
I know it sucks to see a friend not reach their potential, but you can’t make her do anything. You can give your advice, but don’t push her to do exactly what you want. Let her know you’re concerned and why, then support her. That’s all that matters.
