Recently I've had to counsel some of my freinds online.
They've been going through some very tough shit and I'm often left searching through my mind for things to say in a seemingly hopeless situation.
I'm going to provide scenarios and I'd like to hear your inspiring words of wisdom on situations that seem to be hopeless.
Creativity is welcome!
