Are you in or are you out?

A friend-
defined as one willing to
step into stormy waters and
help the swim to shore

A friend –
does not stand
on aforementioned shore,
shouting platitudinal encouragement .

  1. I love this. I’ve had to take a really good look at my friends lately, because I found out that when the going gets tough, some of them are not even willing to stand on the shore and yell encouragement. They walk away.

  2. can you write about being a good friend vs. setting boundaries and leaving behind people who are emotionally draining? and when should you stop being a friend?
