If you have a friend that sometimes seems stressed out about something or maybe be depressed, you shouldn't ignore them. Even if you dont know them well and you noticed signs of something thats bad. In that article a girl noticed posts of a highschool friend of hers that would make all kinds of posts about how bad he felt or giving up on himself. She didnt really approach the person but she wondered if a new app worked that allowed you to text someone like that but she didnt know if it worked. In my opinion, if you dont think one way is working then you should try another to try and get in touch with that person so they know someone really cares.
The personality trait called alexithymia was discovered about 40 years ago by a psychoanalyst who lived in Boston. They use it to describe patients who don't have much to say or don't have much emotion. The word translates from Greek meaning no words for emotion.

Ever once and awhile we all blow a small thing out of proportion and make it a big deal. For example, someone cutting you off in traffic isn’t a reason to scream, stick your middle finger out the window, and yell at the person in your passenger seat. This has happened to everyone and in reality it isn't helpful. Overreactions never make situations better. In fact, they usually make them worse. Stress in our lives can create the conditions for us to overreact. But even though doing so might release tension in the moment, it doesn’t solve the true issue that is causing the stress. All it does is create more stress and anxiety. A few steps you can take to not make things a big deal is, take a moment to gather yourself, rationalize the situation, and then act upon it.

Alexithymia translates from the Greek to mean " no words for emotions." Studies believe the reason people with alexithymia are so boring in session is because they have so much difficulty expressing how they feel.
