**TRIGGER WARNING** So a old friend of mine just had a huge conversation with me that threw me for a loop. He told me that when he was around 10-11 he did indecent things to someone younger than him. At the time he said he thought nothing was wrong. But about 13years down the road now he's telling me that he thinks he should kill himself. I don't really know what to tell him because I really don't see a positive outcome for him. He's not a bad guy, but this is about as damining as it gets. The person in question is not mad at him atm and has not brought it up. But he feels like he's just waiting for the day that everyone he cares about will be disgusted with him and hate him. And when he will be sent to jail, and have a fat "Child molester" sticker posted on him for the rest of his life. I didn't know what to tell him because I think I might have come to the same conclusion if i had been in his shoes. Do you guys have any advice. Because I have no idea how to even remotely respond.
