I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this

I have a internal conflict rageing on inside of me. I have a friend who is constently lead on by women and has other people walk all over him. He is the best person i know but he has no love for himself and cannot see the true beauty in himself.

I want to help him by means of a spell lifting the dark cloud surrounding him. but I'm not sure if this is the right thing to do. I really need some advice of what i should do. I have a strong feeling inside telling me I should do something but not sure of I should because I don't want to accidently hurt him.

If I was in your place, I would ask him if he wanted a little magical assistance before just doing any spells. Maybe if you tell him, in your own words, what you see in him, it would work magic all its own.

I would have to agree, start by asking your friend if he would mind, or better yet, would like a bit of energetic interjetion.  And IMO, a formal spell could be a bit of over kill.  IME, continued positive energy can do alot for someone who's a bit down on themselves.  I think that you really need to watch certain things when dealing with magic, and basing a self-esteem issue on a spell isn't exactly the way I would go.

One could do a spell, that might make him more confident and in a better mood - for a while.
If it is his current nature to allow people to treat him in the way you describe, the spell will wear off.
They always do in my experience if they're woven against the true nature of a thing.

These problems need to be solved on another level.
Difficult, because you might not be able to help your friend with it.

You could ask the God and Goddess (or which ever deities you work with) to help him/bless him/help him find his path or self-confidence, or something along those lines. Might he agree to you working a spell on him?

  There is usually a lesson to be learned by going through a difficut situation.  I don't know if you have had discussions with your friend about this or your post is based on your observations alone.   He will need to be fully aware of his situation before it can change.  A spell for something like self confidence could  help if he agrees that is the problem.  There is also just praying to your Gods for his well being
