One of my kids was telling me about some pretty harsh advice a friend recently shared with her. Painful as it might have been to hear it, it’s a gift to have dear friends who can be frank and honest without fear of damaging the relationship.
Do you have no holds barred friends?
These are the people with no agenda beyond a desire to see us happy, safe and living a balanced life. They want what’s best for us – period.
I am so blessed to have friends like this and I would hope that they, and my family members, see me as an “agenda-free” sounding board for them as well. I may not be “right” about everything, but I will always be honest and call it as I see it..even if it stings a bit.
