The most important question is how much do they mean to you and you to them?

Quite often we have people who are in our lives who would like to be able to support us more and they are just waiting to be invited to do so. Often stuck in the complex position of not wanting to be intrusive and affect their friendship with you and perhaps sometimes we don’t ask for their help because we don’t want to be a burden to our friends…..
