    There's a flaw in your thankfulness. Pointing out flaws is not bravery, it should be standard. Only not pointing them out is cowardice. Although I understand where it comes from, some people just cannot bear the criticism.

    There you go. Where there aren't your friends, there's me. :D Although sometimes I wonder if my criticisms are too harsh, because they're usually long and detailed.

    Encouragement is equally important though. You can't just point out flaws all the time. You gotta find points of improvement, tell people "You're getting better!" and cheer them on too.

    My friends are too straightforward at times. They be like "what is this? You s*ck" lmao And sometimes I'm hurt. But regardless, it's a very good thing. I don't have to falsely believe that I'm good at something.
    Also it's important to encourage them too. Instead of "you're not good for this job" it should be "you have to practice a bit more and then you'll be perfect!"

    It's a bit cruel to say "You suck" I think. It's not constructive, doesn't really offer any advice on how better to grow.
    You don't have to be good at something to believe in yourself. There is no "perfect", if you like something then you're probably not alone in liking it, you just need to find your audience.

    As someone who calls my friends b*tch and a**hole I don't think "you s*ck" is that cruel ^^ But it's definitely harsh if you don't have a super close relationship with them. I agree with the rest of what you said

    Yeah, for the lack of encouragement I've been in a sort of love hate relationship with some. They knew I'd tell them honestly if they asked me, but they also knew I would show no mercy and at times completely obliterate them. But guess that's why they trusted me.
