I have not been to any group therapy, and could not imagine myself to do that. I am too shy to imagine that, and also still do not do so great of this language, which embarrasses me too much. I agree that him knowing you are there for him, that you support him, I know that helps him. I tell my friend a little of what happened in my past, and then could not tell her more. But it helps me to know that I can, with her or few other friends, that they do not judge me bad or not like me because of this. That is good for him, just to know that. Try not to take it as personal, that he maybe does not share so much for a while. I am still dealing of it in my head, and then maybe will be able to share more with friends. Maybe he feels same as me. I wish you both good luck.
