When this happens, they say things they think are good for you but you think they are not supposed to say that right in front of you. Do you say those that speak the truth are bad? Your true friend says the right things before you because they don’t want to lose you.
3. They Want To Be Honest With You
Honesty is one of the qualities of a true friend. To find someone who is truthful and factual to you is not easy. Most pals are liars, they always cook and cover things that will make you happy to believe them.
The real one won’t hide anything but will rather spit the truth right in front of you. They know that when they lurk any single truth from you, it will hunt you tomorrow.
