The world we live in today is an extremely filtered and censored place and sometimes it seems impossible to escape it. Our news and entertainment is filtered, our instagram profiles are carefully curated and edited, even the ingredients in our food are labeled in such a way that doesn’t make you want to gag. It’s hard to be real when we are living in such a fake environment but that has never stopped you, has it? So go ahead, speak your mind and unleash the truth because if you don’t we are all doomed.

 

You speak the truth.

No matter how horrible, you are always more than willing to tell it how it is. No muss no fuss. If you feel a certain way, you’ll be sure to let people know and you couldn’t care less what they think. Hurting feelings is not something you’re necessarily concerned with. To you, telling the truth is more important than possibly having someone be butt-hurt about it. There is a certain freedom that comes from being honest. Think about it, never having to remember a lie you told? Jackpot! Honesty is the best policy not only because, well, it’s honest – but also because you don’t have to store a “lie” file in your brain. You’re home free from ever looking like an idiot.

Your friends need honesty, not empathy.

You are the advice queen/king. Because of your harsh nature, your friends know they can come to you with any issue. Whether or not they like what they hear is their problem – and they know it. Sometimes, the truth needs to be said, no matter how much it hurts. We all need that person who will let us know how it is even if we don’t like it; Someone who won’t tip-toe around our feelings. That person is you. So own it! Be proud of your unfiltered tongue and help your friends, one honest piece of advice at a time.

What awkward moment?

Every group of friends needs that one unpredictable person. You know, the one person you’re scared might say something completely inappropriate? These people are essential because when we’re stuck in an awkward situation and we don’t know how the hell to react, we can just leave it to our lovely un-filtered friend to burst out with some inconceivable word-vomit that’ll have the crowd roaring with laughter and removing that awkward tension.

Dull lives are for dull people.

Not only do you have the talent to turn an awkward moment around, but you’re also a ball of fun day in and day out. Unfiltered individuals like yourself are usually free spirits, without a care in the world, ready for the next adventure – whatever that might be. You say the things you say because you know life is short and it must be lived to the fullest and who the hell’s gonna stop you, anyway? Half of your friends probably live vicariously through you and your insatiable curiosity.

You speak for your friends, even when they don’t want you to.

Whether you told the guy at the bar your girl thinks he’s cute or you told off some idiot who happened to mess with one of your friends. You’ve been there done that! But let’s face it – without you, that guy at the bar would’ve never asked your girlfriend for her number and your friend won’t be bothered by that a-hole ever again. You say what you need to and your friends appreciate it, even when they act like they don’t.

So whether you’re making a crowd laugh, telling somebody off or simply giving advice – everyone can count of your smart  mouth to lighten the mood and bring truth into our lives. Take pride in what you are, my un-filtered friend! Let your mouth get you in trouble – or out of it, but most of all, enjoy this lovely gift you’ve been blessed with. With people like you, we don’t have to wonder what’s going on – we already know.
