Everything I'm Not Made me Everything I Am....

TwitThis

During Puddle Friday '08, I called one
oldest homies, Mean Sexy. She brought
it straight to my dome.

She said, "listen, you failed, school didn't work out
the way you expected, and regardless of whether this
man is in your life or not, YOU have to choose what you
want.

I was like "ouch".

She continued "Listen, I just failed my drivers test,
and I failed my Ph.D test. But guess what. Thats life.
People fail sh-t. I will take them both again.
Honestly, I don't feel like you have been living
in the present. You spend your free time and holidays flying
back and forth. If you want to move to Dallas, move. If you
want to stay, stay. If you want to be in transition, do that. But
choose something and move forward."

Truth be told, I didn't want to hear ANY of that sh-t.

But, one thing that I know for sure, old school
homies
EARN the right to say the sh-t to you that
you don't want to hear
.

Are you okay with telling your friends
things that they don't want to hear?

Why or why not?
Have you done it recently?

Yep if I consider them friends and they require my advice, sometimes it has to be given straight no chaser, no dilution. I'd expect the same from them too 'cos it may hurt in the beginning but in the ends its for my benefit.

i have one girl friend who gives it to me straight and i do the same. as a result we often fight like cats and dogs, but our friendship has lasted almost 20 years...

one thing we have learned together thru the ins and outs of love is that the ending of a relationship is NOT a personal failure. this is something i believe that us strong women have a hard time deciphering. we go hard at work in school in our financial life and see it all as wins and losses but that's not the way the love goes...
