It’s not just you; it’s in our human nature to fall for compliments and sweet words.
Even though they can be sincere, they can often deceit us, especially if they’re spoken by people who use sugar-coated words when they don’t in fact mean any good.
And, the blunt people around us are usually considered ‘not good friends’ as they can be too real at times, which isn’t always what we want or need or what we’ve imagined we look like in other people’s eyes.
But, sometimes, the blunt people in your life can become your best friends- they will allow you to see the bigger picture, even when this is too hard.
They will show you truth and what better liberation is there than truth?
Let’s learn why we should appreciate our blunt friends a bit more!
7 Reasons to Respect Our Blunt Friends

An honest opinion can do a lot of good in the long run, no matter how much you’re running away from it.
Eventually, you’ll have to face it, so it’s better to do it sooner than later.

A blunt person believes in either things being wrong or right.
For them, there’s nothing in between and they believe it’s beneficial to let you know when something seems right or wrong to them.

A blunt person speaks their mind and heart always.
If you have a friend like this, you’ll always have someone to tell you things as they see them, but never behind their back- there’s no reason not to!

Having a blunt friend will help you realize that you have a real friend in every sense of the world- this person will give you honest opinions about everything.

When you know your friend is honest, you know there are no hidden agendas with them and you know that you have a person to back you up, no matter what you’re going through.
