Moving forward into your future could be a difficult process for the two of you to accomplish through this friendship. You'll want to help your buddy find their life path, but that help could actually come across as interference. To try to guide someone else along their path is not only controlling, it's presumptuous.
What does any of us really know about what another person needs to do to get wherever they're going in life? In this one regard, we should really just focus mainly on ourselves and our own journeys. If you find yourself trying to take too much control over your friend's life path, you'll have to ask yourself why. You'll need to learn to let each other follow your own paths with as little 'help' -- or interference -- as possible.
