I have a lot of really nice pals, but only a select few who I enjoy talking to every week if not every day. But it seems as though, one by one, each of those good friends have been entering life scenarios that have them down in the dumps.
My one friend lost his job because of an anger problem he has. This was a month ago, and he's still being extremely curt and unfriendly toward me and all his other friends. It all culminated into a drunken night where he completely went off on me and we have yet to talk since (about one week ago). I should say that during this drunken night, he physically assaulted a girlfriend of mine, and it made me feel unsafe driving with him back home. So I called a cab for us instead of having to endure his anger. But as we were waiting for the cab he just hurled insults at us out the window of his car.
I have another friend who had to withdraw from university last year because of money issues, and despite his best efforts, cannot hold on to a job and lazes around at home all day. He's taken to selling drugs as his main source of income, which has hardened him. He was once really jovial and open to talk about anything, but now I find he is, like the last one, curt and mean. Unintentionally (I hope). I'll ask him how his day was and he either wont reply or tell me to leave him alone.
