I have a really good friend but they are at a really bad place right now. They were laid off again at the end of December (again for the 4th time in 2 years). Thing is they keep choosing temp jobs. In between jobs, when they apply for places and get interviews they are rude and cocky at these interviews. He tells me how it goes and I am baffled that he says certain things during interviews. Then he is annoyed when they don't call him to hire him.
Since he was laid off in December, he chooses just to stay home and do nothing. He says he's done and won't get a job anymore. He is losing is place and moving in with his mother. He also has a teenage daughter and I feel bad for her He is so negative about everything. Now he is having talks about getting a life insurance policy that has suicide coverage and kill himself after the so many years are up. That way the money goes to his child.
I'm getting really annoyed at the whole attitude he has. He acts like life is just cruel to him and he isn't the problem. I understand he is depressed being jobless but this is the 2nd time since I've known him that he hasn't had a job and its a lot worse.
He refuses help, just complains all the time. Then always talking about killing himself, always acting like he has such a hard life.
I a very encouraging and try to help him but nothing is working. I am about done with this negative talk and him stone walling everyone and being an ass to his family and friends.
I'm coming close to ending our friendship but it worries me since I am one of the few people he has in his life. I know he has one other friend and then just his mom and daughter.
What do you think I should do? I have tried everything to help him and encourage him.
