    My friend sent me " I'm getting worse I can't cope anymore, someone was annoying me and I was so close to doing something bad"

    He has gotten in serious trouble in the past, and I don't want them to go through that again. I was wondering if you knew how to help someone in a situation like this.

    Counselling can help. It's something they need to make an effort to attend though.

    They used to talk to a councillor, but that stopped a while ago because they thought that they were fine. Apart from that they talk to me about it but I don't think i can help them that much.

    Mindfulness and meditation practises can help to keep your friend calm if he is open to trying something new. Surprisingly opening a coconut with a hammer is also quite therapeutic., especially if you think of the coconut as the head of the person that made you angry.
