Trusting one's honesty
I agree that it depends on who I am asking…if I am sure they will give me an honest answer…not just tell me what they think I want to hear. So, with that said, given a friend I'm confident in….I would ask this: How could I do better? This has been asked to someone when I wanted to know my weaknesses…how I could be better at work or just in general. I have become more enlightened because of my asking that. I'm grateful to my friends for their honesty.
