A True Friend never get in your way unless you happen to be going Down!
The Preception is that someone who has helped you during your Down Times are often considered as True Friends.
The Idea is that You have received some emotion such as motivational energy or affection or love.
Once you are back in action, the mentality is developed to still need the person to give you the emotion to continue the journey.
And if you dont receive it, then you would be prone to go back to the Down State.
The Worst case is you might try to take over from them even they dont intent to give and results in break up.
As long as Give and Receive are in Harmony there is no Take Over
