Sometimes we need to hear the truth. There’s nothing wrong with honesty and that’s the spin I like to put on this quote. When the chips are down, and it’s important, a real friend will tell you the truth, even if it might sting a
little… Many thanks to Oscar Wilde for this quote:

A true friend stabs you in the front.

But let’s be quick to add, honesty shouldn’t always be equated with ‘brutally’! There are very kind and gentle ways to get one’s point across.
