I once heard :
“The most dangerous addiction in this world is being in the spotlight. People applauding you. Showers you with compliments & sweets words”
Indeed. So very true.
It’s never easy to hear a criticism, especially when it comes from a friend. We tend to be defensive. Possible to think that our friend is not being supportive.
The thing is, a true friend will say the truth. The truth may not always be sound good to hear but we probably need it.
