Just today, I said to a very close friend of mine:
“I love you. You are family to me.
Sometimes that means I “m going to stand by and let you fall.
I “ll be here for you to pick yourself back up.
And I will absolutely kick you in the ass when you don “t.”
A true friend should know when to sympathize, when to empathize, and when to step aside.
