When you have a friendship, a certain amount of love comes with that. So whenever you call someone your friend, you should weigh that friendship against 1 Corinthians 13.
A true friend will always care about the truth and won't reject what you have to say. A true friend is someone that will always be beside you but someone that will not water down what needs to be said. A true friend will give you his or her shoulder to cry on when it's needed. A true friend will never stop calling you their friend.
It really hurts to see a friend hurting... and it hurts even more to know that there is nothing you can do -- even harder still when they don't even want help and are content with being the way they are.
I really wish that some people knew that I loved them and understood that I can't just lie about what I believe in order to keep their friendship.
