Friends. May 12, 2010.

"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out." - Walter Winchell

I’ve heard it said that we are lucky to have even just a single true friend in the world. Many people have dozens of people they call friends, but not a single one they can really confide in.

When some people become suicidal, they tell anyone and everyone who will listen – while others keep their dark feelings a secret and everyone around them is shocked to receive the terrible news.

When the tables are turned and we are a friend of someone who is suicidal, we may not know what to say. We feel powerless to help. But a true friend truly listens, and that is by far the best thing we can do. The best way to have a true friend is to be one.
