This time calls for our best – and some days we may have a hard time remembering what that looks or feels like. Good friends help us remember who we are. I’m not sure who said this, but I love it:
Friends help hold us up when we feel like crashing, they make us laugh, and they essentially say, “hey, let me help you carry this burden.”
Frienship is the gift we can give each other when times are painful. When we despair, a good friend is both compassionate and accepting, and can help us with perspective.
