Stop asking me how I’m doing/feeling. As sincere as you might be in your concern, you don’t really want to know because it’s complicated and depressing and there’s nothing you can do except maybe stop drawing attention to my less-than-ideal situation. In general, I am fine. Obviously, I could be better.
Other ways to help:
Answer my texts.
Show up when I invite you over.
If you can’t make it, let me know.
Eat my food.
Also, if you are in need of a movie buddy, I am accepting applications.
