For and of two of my guy friends. I love them like brothers but they are going through so much right now. I truly feel for them. One of them more than the other. He has issues with his father. And he used to be such a nice boy. But he's growing up and he's changing. He's becoming more... aggressive and opinionated. Not a bad thing but at times it can be. I've tried to help him out so many times. Let's call him Jack. Sometimes I'm like "Jack are you ok?" and he'll either cheer up or he'll mumble something under his breath. I know he's going through alot. I can see it. And it's showing with how he treats his friends. Me being one of the victims. I'm afraid one day he's just going to snap and end up yelling at everyone or slap someone preferrably me since I'm the one he hangs out with the most. I feel as though I'm connected to him in some way. We're like brothers and sisters. We always have each other backs. And we know everything about each other. I've been there for him through every break up. I pray for him all the time. Try to calm him down when he gets heated. And I've had bad dreams about him. That something bad was going to happen to him or that he's going to get hurt and I've even woken up crying and praying for him just asking the Father to please help him. And though he says he's ok, I know he's not. I've never seen him truly upset. And I hope I never will. Worst thing is, I think he likes me. And I'm afraid he's going to ask me out and I'm going to say no. And that might get him really depressed. I was talking to him on the phone the other day for like 3-4 hours and the subject came up about his anger issues and he said how he had punched a hole in the wall before. I told him as long as he doesn't hit anybody. And he said he HOPES he doesn't. And I was kind of like well why do you think you'd hit somebody. And he said he doesn't think he will but he doesn't know for sure. And then just randomly he was like "but I'd never hit you." I was sort of just a little quiet and I told him are you sure. And he said may God pass judgement upon him if he ever did. He needs support. I know this. And I'm trying. Along with some other friends. But it's not like I can get into his very mind, I don't know what he's thinking. My other guy friend is sort of the same way except he's softer and more spiritual. He uses the Bible to answer his problems but he still deals with too much. I'm just afraid one day one of them is going to blow up or snap and I do not want to be there when it happens. But I know it might happen soon with the way things are going for both of them. Should I still keep trying to help or just stay clear?
