4. Giving Your Honest Opinion
A lot of times when our friends ask us for our opinions and ask us to be honest, we tend to apologize if the opinion is negative or would make them feel bad in any way. But honestly, they were the ones who asked for your ‘honest’ opinion in the first place, right? A study revealed that honesty has been linked with good health. So you shouldn’t take back your opinions or lie to them so they don’t feel bad. It is in the best interest of their well-being that you state the truth, which can undoubtedly be hard to digest sometimes. But they’ll come around once they realise you never meant to hurt them, so never regret being honest.
