The most beautiful discovery that true friends can make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. (Elizabeth Foley, American legal theorist)
Sometimes we see friends that seem to be almost inseparable. Everywhere one goes, the other will be there. It appears that they must be co-dependent. That could be harmful, because we all need to have other friends and experiences that fulfill us. You both grow when you can allow your friend to have his or her own life and remain fully supportive of each other.
So let [faith] grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing (James 3:4).
