You might feel attracted initially to the adventurer's spirit within your friend's soul, but soon you'll find that their brand of spontaneity, optimism and encouragement isn't quite what you need to move forward along your own path. In fact, the place you're headed has very little to do with the areas your buddy wants to explore. Your conversations might be wide-ranging, but you two don't speak the same language.
At an even more important level, somehow your friend won't support your attempts to grow and change. You need to develop your own beliefs, despite your friend's urge to do otherwise, because their beliefs and principles just aren't a natural fit for the person you are, or the person you're working to become.
