I have been a help to a few friends who have had rough patches in their so young lives. My high school best friend had some moral issues that he wanted more perspective on where I voiced myself. I do not believe he heeded my advice but I was of course there to receive any backlash or abuse he needed to dish out. I mainly like to be an outlet for the extra good or bad my friends may have. I try to ask thought provoking questions to friends in uncomfortable situations because I have always found it to be the most effective path. I also tried to be there for my middle school best friend but it was definitely harder because of the time difference of England and the US much harder than England and Germany.
