"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

I want to help
but you don't care
You're hurting so badly
it's simply not fair

No one deserves this
mostly not you
I know I'm not perfect
But what should I do?

My friend is going through a really dark time right now... I want to help her but I don't know how. So I listen and write

"it's impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might has well not have lived at all-in which case you fail by default."

Wow this is rellly great! One of the reasons why this is so fantastic is because it hows passion and is written beautifully! Awesome peice! I know you didn't ask for advice on how to make your friend fell better and stuff but I can relate to this and most of the time when my friend is talking to me I don't really know what to do so I just listen and try to think of a way to change her perspective. You know, say things like "at least your not on fire right now" most of the time it seems to help or just make her laugh! Thats my best advice...sorry its not that good. Would you  mind checking out some of my work if you get a chance? Thanks!
