“Faithful are the wounds of a friend” (Proverbs 27:6) “Open rebuke is better than secret love” (Proverbs 27:5) Don’t say you want a real friend who is honest and loyal if you cannot give someone the truth. If you cannot give it, you cannot accept it. Either way, people need to feel safe to give you the truth, or at least their truth. Truthful people also want truthful people around them, so if you have an aversion to telling people things they need to know because of self preservation or because of you “don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings” move on to someone who likes lies too. Omission is a lie.
