There's an unfortunate dynamic operating here: you could be a drain on your friend's energy, and you'll both notice that you feel confused and depleted when you're together, rather than energized and uplifted. You won't mean to have this effect on them, of course; you'll want them to feel excited and full of purpose when they're around you. But instead, they'll respond to you with low energy and uncertainty.
Thank goodness, there is a plus side to all this: Your softer nature will help to smooth your friend's rougher edges, and if they tend to be aggressive, you'll be a good influence on them. Just try to strike a balance between softness and a marked lack of focus. Otherwise, that feeling of friendship and mutual interest will slowly seep away.
