Now that was a night! Good morning everybody!
My best friend called me yesterday around 7p.m.
He doesn't want to finish his Diplomarbeit for the FH (we already had several telephone calls regarding this matter). He doesn't want to/ can't find a suitable job. Everything is meaningless and senseless for him. There is no goal, has no ambitions at all, doesn't want to go out and meet people ... . He was so depressed and down that he simply hung up.
After a short call to my colleague and a SMS to my boss, I took the train at 20:26 to Vienna and arrived at 23:20 at his door.
We talked until 2:45 in the morning. At the end he was even smiling a bit and somewhat relaxed.
I got up again at 5:00a.m and took the train back at 5:57 and arrived at 8:55 at the office.
I feel a bit exhausted by now - but also relieved.
He will give the Diplomarbeit at least a try. He has gained some new perspectives and we will develop step by step aims and goals he can achieve.
Why does the word "man" exist? They stay boys forever. I think when I have a family I will say: I have a grown up boy and a son ...
