Friends don’t let friends take the easy path. they don’t let them do just enough, they don’t let them stand still when they have to run, and they especially don’t let them catch their breath. Friends push friends.
A friend’s not there so you can have someone to lean on, they’re there to make sure that you don’t do any leaning or slacking of any kind. A real friend knows you’re strong enough.
