This is true. I have my best-girl-friend, but I feel alone when I talk to her, because she says she understands, but I don't feel better. The ways that good guys comfort girls helps with the kinds of things that girls can't help each other out with.
I agree. The things I can't change sometimes do change me because I learn to "live life on life's terms." I am open to learning patience and courage, among other things, from the things I cannot change.
