Well, you cannot change him or fix him or make him feel better about himself. What you can do is express your frustration, tell him what you will or will not tolerate, and let him know that if he doesn't get hold of himself and work on his issues, you are not going to sit around and take his abuse nor listen to him whine. Encourage him to find a solution and let him know you will be supportive, but you can't do it for him.
