I’ve heard this type of phrase before in regards to pushing people away, my criticism of it is that it sounds a bit threatening. “You better not take me for granted because I might not be there for you the next time you push me away!” Idk that doesn’t really work for me.  Sure, I agree you shouldn’t take friends for granted, but there’s a reason why people push others away. Sometimes it might be because your friend is a dick, but, more often than not, there’s a more serious reason behind that person’s actions. It’s up to you as their friend to just be there for support and at times, break down the walls that give people a false sense of protection.
