Take care not to harshly criticise family and friends.
We rely on those closest to us for support. We can accept critical words from those who are not close to us because we can believe they reflect a lack of knowledge about us rather than an actual flaw in us. From our friends and family, however, critical words cut deeply. Try to avoid fixing your friends and family. Love them for who they are not the decisions they make. If you must say something negative, always be constructive. Make your criticism reflect your love and respect, not your disappointment.
