We all have those friends who are brutally honest with us whether we like it or not. Although it is often from a place of genuine care, brutal honesty runs the risk of offending, which goes against our natural people pleasing tendencies. As women, we don’t always seek out opportunities to deliver less than perfect news. However, more often than not, that kind of feedback pushes us to do, feel and BE better than ever thought possible. At Jackie, we believe honesty is an essential quality when it comes to life, relationships and style; so let’s chat.
Being honest with those around us can take our relationships to the next level. When we can be unfiltered and honest with close friends, we are saying, “I care about you and want the best for you.” Acting out of this deep seated place of genuine compassion is a trait that has the potential to deepen our relationships and push us to be the very best that we can be.
Taking that step in brutal honesty can be a challenge, but a challenge absolutely worth pursuing. Ask yourself what it looks like to put aside your natural tendency to tell others exactly what they want to hear. The next time a friend asks for your feedback, give them your honest opinion in a compassionate way. Not only will it convey genuine care, but it will bring a new found level of confidence in your relationship.

Look for opportunities to speak truth to the people in your social circle. Honest relationships are ones that flourish and thrive. Although sometimes difficult, reaching out to others with your genuine feedback is an essential piece of all healthy relationships. Whether it be regarding life decisions or clothing choices, be honest with one another. It can open doors to truly beautiful conversations.
