Not everyone can handle the truth, because the truth is often too painful or awkward to confront. But not to you. Your friends might describe you as outspoken and honest, traits that make your presence refreshing and welcome in the conflict-averse world in which we live.
As the famous quote says: “The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”
Being honest with yourself is liberating. And it’s liberating to a few good friends who appreciates someone telling it like it is. It removes a barrier – allowing others to be themselves also.
