Its imperative in any friendship that in the course of time, one needs the help and probably expertise of the other person. What else is friendship? You tend to complement the drawbacks in the other person and so does he. (At least that’s the way it is expected to be.) How far can this balance be tested? How far can one person constantly depend upon, or use the other person?
For me, someone who believes that the best way to have good friends is to be one; it is hard to say ‘No’. I tend to be used by my friends, but I’ve never felt it that way. I’m somehow happy to help always. Interestingly enough, I’m not okay accepting anyone’s help. I believe that the greatest sin in life is to have someone else do your work for you, when you are actually fit and healthy and it is well within your ability to do it.
