A friend can tell you things you don’t want to tell yourself. Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. If you have one true friend you have more than your share. A true friend encourages us, comforts us, supports us like a big easy chair, offering us a safe refuge from the world.
