Today I noticed a friend (psychology student) became alot more withdrawn with her speech and behaviour, which is really odd considering that she usually has a rather light prescence around her. It's so disturbing to notice that a friend change their mood so drastically from warmth to coldness, that it's probably easier to see that friend burst into tears instead.
Asking what was wrong. I found out that it was based off a conversation the night before about life in general. I'm the sort of individual that likes to talk about people's dreams, what they value and whether the stuff people engage in have any meaning or purpose behind them. Honestly, it's the only things I really know how to talk about since I'm pretty bad with other things.
Turns out that my questions had caused her to realise that since starting university, she hasn't really given much time to herself to re-evaluate things in her life, which she had done so in the past. I'm guessing she might have felt overhelmed by the fact that she couldn't answer some questions that I had asked (Why people do things/What she liked to think or talk about). Especially since she has mentioned in the past that she doesn't analyse stuff to the extent that I do.
I do think it's brilliant that she's willing to explore ideas. So I told her today that it doesn't matter too much if she hadn't given herself the chance to examine. But really, it was painful to see her upset, leaving me wondering "Was it worth it? I'd rather have a happy friend."
