Your Honest Opinion
When a good friend asks you this question, do you give your honest opinion? Or do you answer what you think they want to hear. I have a good friend that has asked me for my honest opinion and when I give it to her she gets mad at me. For instance, one time she had a disagreement with someone and when she reiterated the story, I totally understood the other persons view point. I didn't say my friend wasn't entitled to her view point but I tried to explain where the other person was coming from (in a gentle way). She got annoyed with me. I say, if you don't want my honest opinion, don't ask for it. I think good friends should be able to be honest with one another without being hurtful, of course.
