You can help your friend lay the groundwork for establishing their own path in life. They'll meet you when they're a work in progress -- they haven't quite reached where they're going yet. You can help them develop those qualities that are so necessary to moving forward in life.
You'll talk about your dreams and aspirations, and you'll have a gentle way of nudging them along their path with well-placed bits of advice and encouragement. You'll feel a great deal of sympathy for their trials and tribulations. The feeling of sympathy will be high between you, as will your dedication to responsibility, hard work and problem-solving. Though you'll be friends, your friendship could take on a distinct teacher-student dynamic. You will have a lot to teach to each other and a lot to learn as well, so capitalizing on this opportunity will be key.
