My friend is having a pity party. He got fired for lying. He's shutting me out when I can help him. What can I do?
Tell him to never lie unless his mom asks how she looks
Leave him alone for awhile
He will come around. He probably feels kinda stupid for getting fired, so he doesn't want to deal with it with anyone's help.
Let him know you're there if he needs you but try to do things together that aren't related to this issue. He's probably embarrassed and feeling angry at himself. He will need time to get over it.
why is it you think you can help?
Make it a party of 1. He f'd-up. He'll get over it
He is at a point where he needs to help himself before others can help him and before anyone can he has to help himself and want help from others so let him stew .
Beat his ass (not literally) and tell him there are more jobs out there unless he worked on a farm then the Mexicans already took all those
I think it's sweet that your worried for your friend. And if he really did the right thing, his conscious should be the easiest thing to appeal to.
