My best friend an ISTJ is under a lot of stress. He's works super hard ( 7 days/week) while trying to pursue a career in music. On the outside he holds it together, but inside he's breaking down. I hate seeing him in so much pain...it kills me! He's an amazing person (talented too) & I don't want him to give up all hope, but it's looking like that at the moment. The only thing he wants more than anything & that means the world to him is his music....nothing makes him happy & the thought of not being successful in it is devasting to him. He feels unappreciated by those around him & it's breaking his spirit.
Question for the ISTJs....when you are feeling down & about...what helps you cope? What is the best way to approach my friend? How do you deal with disappointment? Any input would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
