I'm going to get emo with this, so bear with me. It'll be brief anyway.
You can easily differentiate the friends that shine from those that are lackluster when you face a dilemma in life. This is not news, but its advantageous to break it down from time to time. The former will go out of their way to help you solve the problem, give sound advice, and make sure you are doing OK. You feel them being there for you, and you take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. The latter will send you a sad emoji, maybe a condolence, and then start talking about themselves. You can't hate them for not going the extra mile, but you don't have to like them for it either. Today, clear distinctions were made.
Emo, I know, but I warned you in advance.
