From a very young age we are taught that honesty is the best policy, but sometimes leading with your honesty can hurt more than it can help. There is a fine line between being brutally honest and hurting someone’s feelings. The problem is, if you’re too honest you may not even realize how you’re perceived by others.
It is absolutely fine to give those in your life your honest opinion, especially when you’re asked for it, however brutal honesty has serious consequences that can permanently alter your relationships.
If you’re not sure if you’re too honest, these signs should offer all the clarity you need. Once you recognize the selected behavior, you can take the steps necessary to continue to be the honest one in the group without hurting feelings and causing resentment among those you love and care about.
