i can always make you smile by boobookittyfuck on deviantART

How do you cheer people up? I have a friend who is down on her luck right now, it isn’t so serious that there are thoughts of suicide, I want to make that clear, but she is facing a few bleak months ahead. Any recommendations?

Of course laughter and cute are tried and true, and I send along links to cute kittehs and silly videos, like this compilation of cat jumps.

But what are things you’ve done to help a friend feel good about themselves and encourage them about the future?
