This picture quote holds very true, and should also make you examine the people you have surrounding you. When times get hard and the going seems to get tougher to the point to where you want to give up, do the people around you influence you to give up, or do they influence you to keep going. This also should make us examine how good of a friend we are to those around us.
Do we encourage, do we persevere with our loved ones, do we believe in our loved ones and give them hope when they are greatly discouraged. If you can answer yes with confidence to all of those questions you are truly a great friend, and if you couldnt it doesnt make you any less of a friend, but it should make you realize certain things you may need to start doing to be more than just a good friend, but instead, a great friend!
