  • Honest, of course. But brutality always backfires on me and kindness never has.

  • There is a difference between honest and brutal in a lot of women. I think it is all about tone. I will tell my friends what I think they need to hear or consider, but they know that I am not judging them or telling them what to do, just what I see/think/would do. Beyond that, I think it is important that you don't take it personally if they don't follow your advice.
