In healthy and real friendships, authenticity is embraced. If you are a frank person, more than likely, your real friends will love you for your honesty. A fake friend will hate you for it and avoid you. Your real friends will be around whether you are on Cloud Nine, or Rock Bottom. The fake ones hate when you are high and love when you are low.
