Being A Good Friend: The 5 Minute Rule

57

Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When deciding whether or not to say something to a friend about her appearance or behavior, keep this rule in mind. If it is something she can fix in 5 minutes (something in her teeth, talking too loud, etc.) go ahead. If not, it is best to keep it to yourself.

MORE INFORMATION:
This way no one has to hear, "You have gained a lot of weight!" or, "Did you know you have a zit on your forehead?". Obviously these are things your friend knows about and can't fix, so why make her feel needlessly self-conscious? And hopefully your friends will treat you this way in return.
