Today I caught up with a mate I haven't seen in a really long time.
He is studying Astrophysics at Uni, works at the Planeterium as a Astrophysist and has high hopes about someday working for NASA. He's extremely intelligent, borderline genius.
I won't lie, a few years ago he was suicidal, but only because his whole world as he knew it went down the crapper. He found out his dad was having an affair, his folks then got divorced, custody battle etc.
But these days things are alot better...or so I thought!
Anyway, over dinner, he asked me how I was sleeping these days. I told him, fine, except I go to bed late and wake up at the crack of dawn...which can't be healthy.
He told me that lately he's been having trouble sleeping, can't manage to do his hmk, everythings a mess, that he often finds himself wondering if he really wants to be here and if he's on the right path!
At first I thought he was talking about his career and study, but I soon figured it was a little more than that. For some reason he's started to doubt himself...his life is coming apart at the seams and he was silently asking me to sew him back up...
This guy was like an added limb, we were inseperable. He's my bestest friend in the universe, if anything ever happened to him I'd be totally shattered. I love him more than life it's self!
I want to be there for him, but I live almost 100km's away....and I don't think regular phone calls are going to cut it forever, HELP!
