Yes, Jonas, I can relate to your experiences. I have tried to help others only to have them react against me moments later. Seems like it is damned if we do, and damned of we don’t. But you are right, we can only be lighthouses pointing our friends towards their own solutions (which they should find out eventually through all the shit). Being tugboats only leads them towards a shore that they don’t want to be in. My own personal experience can attest to that. Thanks for hitting the nail on the head Jonas!

Loves storytelling in all its forms, from books to movies to videos and all else. Life is a story and I want to fill each chapter with life or lives well lived
