The Cue: My Best Friend’s Wedding

The Scene: 

Jules is desperately trying to keep her best friend from getting married, even asking her funny gay friend George to slip into a tux and act as her fiancé. When Jules’s scheming and plotting goes haywire, George tells her that in the chase she’s in, no one’s chasing her. Jules comes to realize that what George said was true and she even becomes thankful to him. If not for his honest words, she would never have been able to accept the painful truth.

The Code: Be honest.

If not for George, Jules could have become a wedding wrecker, and she could have lost a dear friend at that. When your pal needs a little push to help her get back to reality, give it. Just remember to break it to her gently. Don’t be brutally honest. You want to be a good friend, so you do want to watch out for her feelings too.

When you think your friend doesn't need to know about a certain issue, ask help from someone who would know what to do. Weigh the pros and cons of the situation. Although it’s true that being a good friend requires honesty, there are some things better left unsaid. Be careful and sincere when you tell her the truth.
