You’ve got friends… And then you’ve got blunt friends. Blunt friends, for the most part, are misunderstood. They come across as rude when in reality they just have the best of intentions when speaking their minds. If anything, when they are super honest to you, it means they truly care. Not everyone is so lucky to have a blunt friend, but if you are, these are all the reasons the blunt friend is the best friend you’ll ever have.
1. A blunt person will never shit-talk you.
If you’re friends with a blunt person, it might just be you’re one of those magical species of human that doesn’t get on their nerves or you’re too busy being blunt yourself. But if they have something to say, you can count on hearing it from them directly, because talking behind their friends’ backs is just not in their nature.
2. They’ll tell you the truth – even if it hurts.
A blunt person holds truth to the highest standard. If there’s something they think you need to hear, they’ll tell you. But be aware, just because you need to hear it, doesn’t mean it’s always what you want to hear. The good thing about this is that your friendship issues don’t build up and explode. Instead of arguing, you’ll have meaningful and nurturing discussions.
