A young man approached me recently and told me this: that his friend had, more or less, betrayed him. Not knowing his friend or the circumstances surrounding this (more or less) betrayal, I had very little advice to give this young man. I am not certain, however, that he was actually seeking my advice. I think it is more probable, in fact, that he merely wanted to tell someone, myself, for instance, that his friend had, more or less, betrayed him. I do not feel at all privileged to have been the someone that he chose, but I must admit that I was somewhat flattered.
