Iva been practicing magic for a little bit and now Im completely at a loss. My boyfriends sister, niece and his nephews have passed away due to a car crash. They were some of his closest family members and he has become completely shut out and depressed. I feel like Im losing him day by day. I want to help him and be there for him but he wont even look at me anymore. Im terrified for him. I have spoken to him to try and talk to someone professional who can help, and he is thinking about taking that on board. (Trust me, hes so stubborn that is a big stepping stone)
Are there any spells that can help to aid him through this depression, or a spell to put his mind at peace? I have not been with him long, but I really care for him and this is so heartbreaking. He does not believe in magick, or anything like that so I would not be able to get him to work with this. If anyone can help me, please let me know.
Everything must run its course. You'll have to be patient and allow him the time he requires to mourn. I am truly sorry for the loss of family. I personally feel it's too soon to involve magic on a unwilling individual even though your intentions are to help him and not out of personal need.
That is a truly awful tragedy. I'm so sorry for yours and his loss.
The thing is that what he's feeling right now is not even necessarilydepression. Depression isa chronic imbalance of hormones in one's brain that causes them to feel (or not feel) a certain way without necessarily having a physical reason why
What he's dealing with is probably just grief. That's not to minimize it. It's still very difficult and painful to go through, and he is most likely very sad and unsure how to cope at the moment, but grief is also just a natural, healthy, and necessarypart of life. We all feel it at some point. It would be concerning if he did not.
In my personal opinion, there isn't a magical "fix" to this. He needs his time to grieve and learn how to cope and he is just going to be sad for a while. The best thing you can do is be there for him and remind him of the little bits of good that are still going on around him. Just a gentle reminder that life goes on. If he starts to really dwell on the matter, it may be time to seek professional help. Or a grief counselor in general could help him figure out how to get through it and cope with it.
Best of luck to you and him, and again, so very sorry for your losses.
