Someone close to me recently broke his ankle, and I think he's getting a little depressed about it. He keeps worrying that his friends are going to forget him, he hates being left out of activities and he's pretty frustrated (which is understandable). What I want to know is, how can I help cheer him up?

I don't want to see him spend the next six weeks feeling totally miserable, and I was hoping some of you have been in this situation or have some cool ideas of how to help.

Hi CG!

One good thing you have going for you is that it's winter and most activities people tend to do in winter months are indoor activities. Which he should be able to join in on better than if it were say, July and everyone was at the pool or out on the lake or whatever.

Maybe implement a Friday night board game get together and rotate it between four or five friend's houses? You could go a little further and say, the team who wins the most games in a certain time frame will be treated by the losing team to a Saturday at a local fun place come warm weather. Or a movie night during the week where everyone gets a chance to pick a video, pop some popcorn and visit?

I think you must be a great friend to be so concerned! Whatever you guys decide to do, I'm sure you will make sure to include him. Focus on summer or springtime, when he will be mended, and plan some fun activities he can look forward to.

Good luck! 🙂

Thanks!

Those are great ideas--he is a snowboarder (that's how he broke the ankle) so he's bummed about missing the season, but I think your idea of focusing on the later seasons is great. Now we just have to hope he heals well!
