This friendship will offer you opportunities. You can both really accomplish something big through your connection with each other, if you put your minds to it. You'll create an active desire to make those changes you've always thought about but maybe haven't gotten around to yet.
You, especially, will help and encourage your friend to make those changes and more. They'll find ways to achieve their goals in this friendship, due in part to your influence. Best of all, you'll help them to understand their own process of change. You'll both talk about your feelings and your growth spurts; you'll tell each other what it looks like from the outside. And you'll support each other. Your own growth process will inspire your buddy's search for meaning in life, and vice versa. If this sounds heavy, it is. This aspect will help deepen your friendship.
