Recently I have 2 friends that have confided in me that they are feeling rather helpless and stressed up with life. The up and downs of life is taking its toll. I very much feel helpless over the problems they are facing and with the fact that there is nothing much I can help other than to offer a listening ear and the comfort of friendship. I guess my previous experience as a counsellor and the experience of life itself is not enough for me to give them the advice they very much needed. This has created some level of stress within me as I am too undergoing some stress from work and life itself. *sigh*
I really hope that I can cheer my friends up. Any suggestions?
