To the Friend Who's Flaky Because of Their Mental Health


Many years ago, an older, wiser friend of mine said something that nested deep inside me. He said, “Friends never have to say they’re sorry.” It was a kindness to alleviate my guilt (I don’t even remember over what); I pondered it long after it did its job.

The statement made profound sense to me and became a cornerstone in my definition of friendship. Friends never have to say they’re sorry. Because friendships aren’t only based on your actions, your words, a moment in time or even a stretch of time.
