A Thousand Wishes

Let us destroy the notion
that a friend
supports you
even when they know
you are wrong.
That is not friendship.
That is an accomplice;
an enabler.
Friendship,
in its truest sense,
is loving another enough
to stand up to them
before they ruin their lives.
Though it requires courage
to stand up to your adversaries,
a great deal more is demanded
when standing up to your friends.
Be that friend,
won’t you?

  1. I have never been that friend. My friends know if they choose to come to me, they will hear my honest thoughts on situations. They have admitted that while my honesty stings a bit, simply because it was the opposite of what they wanted to hear, it was the most beneficial.
