A friend will speak words of truth no matter how much they long to take the easy road and speak flattering lies. Knowing that a moment of pain may be the means of sparing a lifetime of misery. But an an enemy of the heart will uplift, desiring to see you fall.

I was not a big fan of your warning that I was eating myself to death, but now that I am sick, I am sure glad that you cared enough to try and keep me well.
