There were two close  friends who had known each other for a long time.  One friend we’ll name Mary and the other Jo.  Mary was going to a party and purchased a new outfit for the  occasion.

At Mary’s apartment, she asked Jo if  she would like to see the new outfit  purchased for the party? Jo replied yes.  Mary came out of her bedroom very happy looking forward to Jo’s comments.

Mary asked then Jo what she thought.  Jo being  honest stated she did not like the outfit and reasons why.   After hearing Jo’s comment  Mary became agitated  taking Jo’s honesty as  criticism.  Mary was hurt by Jo’s statement.

What scenarios could have contributed to Mary being hurt?   JO was just being honest?  I look forward to your answers. 🙂
