How to make your friend happy

When we are with our friends, we can reach really far, exciting and fun places. When you are with your friends, you usually do crazy stuffs and think of crazy things and plans. You don't have to pretend that you are somebody else when you are with them. You can just be yourself. =D But, there are times that our friends are really down and you just want to ask them what bothers them (but they just won't tell you). How will you make your friend feel better if you don't know what bothers him? But you still want to help?

Hmmm.. if my friend/s won't tell me about their problems, I guess they really need time to be alone to think about their problem without our help... in that case, I will not do anything that might annoy or upset them (because I don't know their problem and condition)... just sit next to them, maybe read a book or draw something, or just sit idle... just to let them think on their own and to make them know that in that time of trouble, they are not alone & there's always someone to talk to if they prepare to open their heart..

Then maybe I can just sit right next to her and wait until she opens up the topic voluntarily? I'm just not used to seeing her that way.

in my opinion it's better that way then to try figure out what her problem and try to cheer her up based on my own opinion, that in the worst situation might hurt her more then she already had with her problem.. I'll help pray for your friend to be able open her heart to you :), and I believe for every obstacle in life will make your friend stronger then before :)

Make a special date with your friend to do things that he considers fun. Our friends don't have to tell us their deepest darkest secrets. When your friend is ready, he will tell you. Just make sure that you are there to listen.

She is not talking the day yesterday. She just had her earphones plugged in her ears and she rarely smiles. Maybe she will be better tomorrow.
