Honesty is great and being honest in conversations with our friends means that everyone’s on the same page.
If we don’t have them with our friends, then stuff could end up getting blown way out of proportion and end up being a bigger deal than it has to be. Once, one of my friends liked the same girl that I did and it could’ve gotten messy for all of us…but we spoke about it and sorted it out before anything bad happened, she liked him more than me and they got together, and we’re still close today.
So I’m really glad I told him how I was feeling rather than staying quiet and letting it simmer. I always try to keep having truthful conversations with my friends, so that we’re all on the same page and can avoid anything coming between us. Being honest is also about making sure you stay true to yourself, so if people pressurise me to do stuff I don’t want to, I always try and find a way out of it.
