Are You The Meanest Friend in Your Friend Circle? You know that friend who seems MORE than willing to give you criticism on every life choice you make whether you ask for it or not? According to a new study, they're being that blunt out of LOVE and might just care about you more than anyone else.
Believe it or not, the reason they're being mean is because they really, really want what's best for you in life, so they're not going to mince words when they feel like you're straying off a good path.
The researchers surveyed 140 adults and asked them about hypothetical situations. They say, "These findings help us to understand why we sometimes may try to make our loved ones feel bad, if we perceive this emotion to be useful to achieve a goal."
