Your real friends won’t sugarcoat the truth. They won’t lie to you just to make you feel better. They will tell you the harsh reality of any situation you find yourself in.
I would rather someone tell me the hard truth, instead of telling me a lie. “Say it like it is please.”
Your real friends are going to tell you when you look like a hot mess. They will tell you when your making a huge mistake. And they are fully aware that this could ruin your day, but they are just looking out for you. Those are my kind of friends.
True friends will tell you what you don’t even know. They notice the things that set you off. They notice the people who annoy you and the people who you are drawn to. They notice if you act differently around people, or a partner who isn’t treating you well.
Your real friends are the ones who don’t care about saying something you don’t want to hear.
True friends don’t fake anything, regardless if it hurts your feelings. Why! Because they want you to live your best life. They want you to be happy. And sometimes we can’t tell when we’re falling apart.
Real friends will be the one to tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth, but will be the ones to tell you your partner is not faithful to you.
If they see how someone is treating you, and are blinded by love, they won’t pretend to like him. They won’t pretend it’s okay. They will let you know. They will tell you the truth that you sometimes really don’t want to hear.
But that’s what real friends are for. To pick you up when you fall apart. To lift your spirits when you have to break up with a crappy boyfriend. To buy you Kleenex and watch sad movies. To drink to much wine with you, and have a girls night out.
That’s what real friends are for. To tell you what you already know in your gut, but are scared to admit it.
Tory don’t do things out of spite, they don’t do it out of jealousy. They do it out of pure love for you. They don’t want you to settle with anything in your life. You deserve better.
Your real friends are the ones who have the highest standards for you. And that’s because they love you with their whole hearts. That’s an incredible friendship. Real friends are honest, no matter how much the truth can hurt.
