Might as well be truthful...

This philosophy gets me in trouble now and then. I have a history of not meaning to hurt somebody when I tell them the truth, but they did ask me.

It's not like I do not have a filter, I do, despite what my mother thinks. It is just that if you want an answer or advice from someone, I would think you would want the truth, right?

If I went to my financial adviser and asked, "Hey how's my accounts doing?" If they say, "Great!" then I get my quarterly statement showing a loss for all three months, I am going to be pissed!

Anyways, while out this weekend, a friend of mine asked for advice. And I think that the pure honesty that I answer with sometimes makes a friend wanna reach across a table and choke a bitch occasionally...

But then, wouldn't you WANT to know the truth? You did ask me, by the way, I did not just "offer" it up. See, my boys know I give advice out and they use me frequently in this manner. So when one of my boys asked why he is not succeeding with the ladies, I told him the exact reason, and although he was hurt (I could see it) I hope he understands that taking care of the problems will prevent him from so much rejection in the future.

It was a common problem, and I will give a solution in the next post.
