I hate the phrase, "Telling it like it is." When someone says they "tell it like it is," I usually assume that means that they are rude and don't care. "I tell it like it is" is usually the follow up to a mean spirited comment.
But, we all need people in our lives who aren't afraid to "tell it like it is." I happen to have several of those people in my life. I've had a lifelong arrangement with my sisters. I have built friendships with people who- from a place of love *cough cough,* can put me in my place in a hot second.
I'm In The Powder Room sharing one of my most unflattering moments. A friend may or may not have said, "Stop acting like an a-hole." I may or may not have been acting like an a-hole. Either way, I am grateful for loved ones who "tell it like it is."
How about you? Do you have someone to sound the A-hole Alarm?
