Hey Laurie, there’s a very good book about the ethical dilemmas born out of friendships that get derailed by no other force than our human nature.
The author is Mark Matousek, he wrote ‘Ethical Wisdom for Friends’, and he is a master at examining friendship as ‘a mirror of our inner lives’.
Is this a mirror that anyone is prepared to stare at and face the image that’s staring back?
I doubt it. But it’s worth trying. Mr Matousek, I am sure, would put it more eloquently.
