You may have heard it before. Constructive criticism. "I am not trying to hurt you I am just trying to help you."
Sometimes you may come across a friend who may act like a friend but they are actually hurting you. They point out your flaws and make you feel that you have to change yourself in order to be liked. When you get upset they claim that you are being sensitive.
Friends do give advice but when friends make comments and insult you they are being emotionally abusive. Everyone has their quirky ways and the duty of a good friend is to accept their friend faults and all. The minute you have a friend who puts you down and is always insulting you is the minute you should find a new friend.
Do not listen to any negative comments that people say. Focus on people who raise you up instead of bring you down.
