There is one person in this big, ridiculous world who can say anything to us. What makes this person different is that he or she isn’t offering “helpful” advice with the actual intent to tear you down.
This person is being harsh in order to help you be your very best self. He or she wants to make your life BETTER and EASIER.
There is no bad intention. There is only the need to show you the way — when you can’t seem to find it by yourself.
Who is this person? Who is the person who can say a bunch of sh*t that would usually cause you to throw a punch?
Your best friends, of course.
Your BFF can say absolutely anything to you, because you know it’s out of love. Saying that you look like Shamu isn’t mean; it’s simply true. You do look like a whale, and you should change outfits for the good of everyone around you.
Yes, some of the things your best friend says might sting. But you know deep down that it’s just a cold, hard dose of reality.
And let’s face it: Your best friend is the only person you listen to, anyway.
Here are things that are okay only if your BFF says them:
That outfit looks like complete sh*t on you.
Your boyfriend is a f*ckboy.
You’ve gained weight.
You’ve lost too much weight, and it isn’t cute.
