Hi guys, my ESFP friend is under stress for 2 years already (mostly from family pressure & relationships failure). It has been developing slowly but now it is pretty serious. His Ni is working like crazy which turns him from a bold, brave and extremely active person into this worry-prone one. He is now thinking about crazy negative things from anything, he's afraid of getting killer-disease from petting a dog, he's assuming that every friends are tired and don't want to play with him anymore, he literally didn't do anything anymore because he afraid something bad will come.
He will now just stay in his room thinking and feeling sad, he even creates schedule for him to follow (I guess that his Te) but he can't commit to it for more than a week, then he will continue to think and feel sad. He even thinks that he is nothing and his character is stupid, it's like he afraid to be himself. Staying in is also killing him because I know he needs tons of activities, but now he is getting weaker everyday. Advice doesn't seem to work when his mind is filled with crazy thoughts. Can anyone show me how to get him out of it? I'm really worry too.
Thank you for reading this and helping!
