"I'm just being honest" isn't an excuse for making hurtful comments that have no constructive value.
I'm away from sanity right now...please leave a message after the beep.

If you hurt someone with your criticism, apologize. It may be something that they need to hear, but if you upset them the message will be lost.

If someone has taken your criticism to heart and changed something, take notice! Trying to change can be hard.
