Your friendship will become very important to your friend as they realize how much their connection with you allows them to access parts of themselves that were hidden before, particularly in relation to their purpose in life. Your support will help them to become the person they want to be. In fact, you'll both help each other access your best selves.
You'll feel a natural kinship from the start. This kind of familiarity will give your buddy the feeling that you'll be true friends. You'll certainly help to illuminate their life path in a way that they might not be able to do on their own. You'll also help them define their values even more closely, and you'll give them the strength they need to move forward in life. Your friendship will serve as a solid base from which they can move outward into the world.
