Love is blind, but friendship closes its eyes. A true friend will see your faults clearly, unlike a lover who views you as perfect and who may be blind to your flaws, but friendship causes them to close their eyes and ignore these shortcomings. True friends accept you as you are, warts and all. If someone is always pointing out your imperfections or putting you down because you are flawed then they are not truly a friend. These individuals are fake friends and it is better to eliminate them from your life. Fake friends are worse than enemies because you know enough not to trust your enemies. A real friend will accept you exactly the way you are and will ignore your flaws even though they see them. When you care about someone you want them to be confident and have good self esteem. If you point out their flaws then this will have an impact on how they see themselves, something you don't want because they are a friend. Friends support each other and give each other a boost instead of dragging each other down with negativity. This means overlooking minor flaws for the sake of the friendship and each other.
