Whatever needs to happen in your buddy's life to get them where they're supposed to go, you'll be the one to help them find it -- you'll even push them along on their path. Your friendship with them will help them to learn deep, important truths about their life and their future that they might never have guessed at on their own. You're naturally a deep and intensely emotional person, and you'll help your friend tap into their own inner depths that might previously have been hidden to them.
While this will definitely be an intense experience for them, maybe even uncomfortably so, it will undoubtedly be a positive one in the end. You'll encourage them to become who they are, just through being yourself and operating on your normal, natural level. You'll show your pal the path toward enlightenment, and they'll look back on this experience with gratitude. As long as they stay motivated to process their emotions and be active in their personal transformation, they'll develop a clearer idea of where they're supposed to head in life.
