    As a friend, I think I’m like Rachel. I don’t sugar coat things and if someone only wants a softball version and they aren’t ready to hear the truth then they’d better warn me. Otherwise, don’t ask.

    I have a variety of friends these days but I have to say that my husband is my best friend. He’s just the person who thinks the same way I do and always has the exact same reaction to things that I do. Not like when you tell a story and one person says “How great!” while the other says “How awful!” He totally gets how I’m going to react to any given situation and generally feels the same way.

    I do think girlfriends are important too, and I have a few good ones here. My oldest ones have gotten busy and drifted off for the most part.

    But I’m a great and super loyal friend….I don’t want to come off as Holier than thou…I’m just naturally honest so it doesn’t occur to me to sugarcoat things. And I have opinions. Sometimes having opinions can be unpopular. πŸ™

      But loyalty is worth a lot more to me! Agreed -Opinions are often unpopular.
