    I recently had a good buddy tell me I was being an "Asshole" and my first reaction was self-reflection and then I asked for further insight to his perspective on the situation. It just kind of hit me. Only a true friend could tell me I was being an asshole and not piss me off. :cool:

    What is the one thing only a buddy can say to you without you getting pissed off?

    Well stated. I think a friend can also tell you if your seeing a situation as it really is. Like, "your taking it too personal"..type of conversation

    Exactly CUBE. Now, can you give me an example of what you've been told?

    It could be anything. I'm curious to know what we say to one another when we are close buds.

    Only a true buddy could say anything as long as he is joking or trying to prove a point about bad choices or behavior. True buddies are always honest.

    As mentioned above, in the middle, between the eas
    You have a piece of spinach stuck to your tooth.
    You should listen a bit more lightly, he might be exaggerating
    He wouldn't do that to you, and he doesn't deserve it from you ay more than you deserve it from him.
    You're overstepping your social boundaries. Shut up!
    If you want to talk to your wife like that then I'm not sure you and I can hang out.
    I don't mind lending you money this time, but don't make a habit of it. I don't want you owing me money.
    It's you. You can't hold down a job because you are irresponsible. It's not your stupid boss.

    OK BRIEF, thought of another example. I have put on 15lbs over the last few years due to my diabetic drugs. It is a battle. So my best bud just told me...
    "You really need to lose the 15lbs...I mean you could look muscular, but it doesn't show like it really could." Most people would say I need to lose weight and I would feel hurt...but I knew he meant it out of love for me. Anyway, off to do cardio now. :)
