you got it right! it will help you improve yourself! even though they are negative but still it tells you that there is something not right.

Thanks for BR First !!! Yes infact a friend who can tell negatives about you is your true friend . Because most of the times we consider ourself perfect still we can not reach our goals . Only a true friend who can tell you sincerely about your negatives ,can help you realize your weaknesses, and you can overcome the same to reach your goals efficiently ....yes !!! Thanks For raising such a good discussion.....! Happy Mylotting ! Take Care ! Ganesh !

i prefer the truth. the fact that my friends dont lie to me is important and of course i dont lie to them. even if what they/or i say sometimes sucks its still the truth and perhaps it would help that person in a way. that is if they are my good friends. if they are not that close to me then i really dont care that much and wouldnt really mind lying to them just so that i dont have to explain why i said what i said. does that make sense?

I would rather a friend who told me negative comments things that are true, because if anyone would tell you the truth you would rather have your friend tell you the truth. Its best hearing it from your friends then from any body else.
