Winning at the wrong game is an unsatisfying gift. Hell is continuing to play the wrong game without ever realizing it's folly.
True friendship is consistent presence, especially when it's hard, without judgement or regard for utility.
Trust, or incentivize. Loving indifference, or skin in the game.

Life is a team sport won by serving your teammates.
Shooters get the glory. Passers win championships.
