I have a friend who is usually has no issue with social life but suddenly decided to refuse any social activity, including their close friends.
They are still meeting with close relatives and friends, but refuse to go out, even on activities they normally like.
I have been in their position before, and I was actually yearning for someone to give me a little nudge ("force") to get back to my circle. Now I want to be available to help when my friend suddenly stops contacting everyone because they have a problem.
How should I help a friend that is suddenly socially withdrawn? Or should I just wait it out? The goal is to stop them from getting even more withdrawn. They don't have to spend their time with me, but I want them to stop isolating themselves.
Both this friend and me are ethnic Chinese in Indonesia, but I'm looking for answer considering Asian culture (I think the culture is similar enough across the Asian for this matter).
