A Photo Essay on Friendship and Criticism

Some­times, a friend’s crit­i­cism cuts so deep, it hurts.

It causes such anguish, that our love for the friend­ship momen­tar­ily turns to dust.

Crit­i­cism can leave a per­ma­nent imprint.

Nev­er­the­less, how­ever hurt we may be, crit­i­cism can smoothen the rough edges in our character.

A true friend is one who doesn’t pre­tend we are per­fect, and who has the sin­cer­ity to crit­i­cize us when we deserve it. A true friend some­times needs to be brutal.

    Loved it. The last pho­to­graph was straight out of If I Could See Bet­ter … I don’t think there is a higher com­pli­ment I can give :).

      Wow, thanks so much. And I can’t think of any higher com­pli­ment either! Will take time for me to digest this truly — you made my day!
