Fear is a natural feeling, so when a friend is starting to feel afraid, do your best to help them. Ask them what has them feeling so scared so you can start trying to help them feel better. Depending on what the person is afraid of will determine how easy it will be to calm them. If it is a simple fear, calm them down and let them know that what they are afraid of won’t hurt them. If they had just gone through something traumatic, let them know that you are there to help them so that they can feel comforted and slowly stop being afraid.
