Ups and downs

One of my friends feels depressed these days. He chooses to hide himself from everyone.
James is my colleague and good friend. He sits next to me. We usually have a talk and share our ideas about everything during the recess. We have some traits in common. That is, we love to be free and enjoy being alone most of the time though we seem to be active and humorous in presence of people.
But these days I can feel James is depressed. He seldom showed up in the office. Today, he gave me a message, saying he was too depressed to talk to anyone.I know he is facing some frustrations in life. When we were young, we were taught that the only way to overcome difficulties was to make more efforts. However, after we grow up, we find in this world there are so many things which are not under our control. We try our best, but we still feel helpless. Perhaps we should take these trials well and learn some lessons to make us become wiser.
James, I hope you can get through the downs of life as soon as possible. After all, we are such good pals. Without you, life in school is boring.
