I don't know what the problem of my friend stopped write her thesis. I try give her motivation, help her find some jurnal, help her find a theory and book, but she's stopped write her thesis. I'm confused to give her motivation. Now, I don't want to meet her before she returning back to write her thesis. She said to me that she wants to finish her collage as soon as possible, but I didn't see anything where is her poisson, where is her effort. Any suggesstion here?

Perhaps, your friend is having problems. So, your friends, do not have the passion, for her thesis. You must continue to give encouragement, to your friends. Give your friends a picture, what will be your friend can get, if your friend can complete the thesis. Remind your friends, with her parents, who had tried, to pay tuition. Hopefully, you will succeed. You are very kind, and caring for your friends. Your friend will appreciate you.

Well a candidate for a degree in a subject needs to be passionate about what they are writing about. If she is not motivated in her subject then she is not going to be motivated to do the actual physical research and even less motivated to go on with the sometimes hypothetical analysis and discussion of her subject. That can't be found in a library and you cannot pick a view out of the air. You have to back it up. I never wrote one but I know many who have. That's the whole point of a thesis. To prove one is knowledgeable in a subject and that they have a personal view. This tells the college she deserves her degree. They take a very long time. Once she finds something she can present a view on that will help her do the research and then the mental analysis. You cannot help her, she has to do this herself.

What kind of thesis are we talking about here? Is it a thesis for a paper, which would only be about one or two sentences, or are we talking about an actually paper thesis which would be several pages long? If it is a thesis for a paper, then that isn't too bad, she just has to come up with an idea or argument and run with it. If it is the actual paper itself, which I am guessing it just might be, then she is going to have to read as much as she can on her subject because that research is crucial. She needs to read anything that she can read on her topic, and she needs to be able to argue those ideas and come up with a thesis that says, "My ideas are different from everyone else's".

I can relate to your friend. writing a thesis is a major issue and contains a lot of pressure. It is not only the pressure to succeed but to meet expectations from different people like parents, teachers, friends and many others. Many people like to say that writing a thesis is easy but saying and doing it are two different matter. I myself is mulling the idea of stopping my thesis and my studies completely simply because it gets confusing and you're stuck with an idea that doesn't advance. it's kinda making you crazy and the constant pressure to finish it does not help. Personally, I don't think what you did was good but maybe at the same time, it was good because she needs the space and time to decide what to do with her material. She might need to do some distractions to help gain a new perspective on the matter. (that method works on me anyway). I'd advice you (if you need it) to be her constant friend. Support her at she does because ultimately, she's the one who know the best for her. and if she ever makes mistakes, you're be there to help her and have the privileged to say 'I told you so'.

Maybe she just needs some time to herself. When all the stuff and things in her head right now she may have shut down for a while. Sounds like she is getting anxious. If she quit writing on it then it sounds like she does have a topic so all she has to do is write it. Even well established writers get writer's block and have to quit for awhile. Be patient. She knows what she needs to do.

I hope so. As long as I know, beside that she has a problem with her dad, but I don't know about the detail of her problem. I'm already said to her that I know about her thesis and I want to help her. I hope she knows the best for her self :) have a good day for you
