That is all I need in a friend: someone who I can be comfortably sad with.
Be a healer. Be a shoulder for someone to cry on every once in a while. Listen to what their heart has to say and offer them your unconditional tenderness, support, and sympathy as you calmly prepare them a cup of tea. Tell them “It will eventually be okay” as you little by little restore their energy back to the serenity of love.
The most beautiful kind of friend is the one who laughs with you in the fire.
