In my opinion, being frank does not necessarily have to hurt others. Being truthful means not telling lies. You needn't comment on people unless you are asked to. If you think it hurts them, then you should not say anything. Being frank to a close friend will not offend him as he/she knows your character. On the other hand, if we comment on newly-acquired friend who does not know us very well, then he will be under the impression that we are insulting him. In order to maintain our friendship we ought to be discreet. Nowadays, there are a lot of sensitive people, so we had better watch out if we do not want to get hurt.

as chakra told you, you don't have to comment all things about a person only by the reason that u are frank… sometimes we have to hide our frankness for dont hurt our friends… this is not a lie, it is omit some comment… Someday a friend question me: Is this t-shirt nice? i think: "I never would never use this" . So, I question him: "Do u like it??" he say: "Yes". I told him: "If u like it, thats all right!" I dont told him, i dislike it… n its all right! LOL

hi lady:)

 it depends lady:0)

i always take the intiative if its good thing so ill say my openion freely an without worry..other than i would shut my mouth unless i was asked then i hafta say it openly an honestly, but still i have to keep it in a form that will not hurt…( an that makes some ppl got angry with me  ):P 

i tend to be frank most of the time, but i try to say it in away that doesnt hurt…an thats only if i was asked i never say my bad-side openion unless i was asked.rather than i will never say my openion
