This articles purpose is to convince us that being honest and upfront is good for relationships, and that it is good to trust. She tells a story about her time with her best friend and how great it was and how she shared a beautiful moment with her friend, really emotionally charged. She used some policy claims at the end, as well as fact claims and emotional claims. She really appealed to emotions in this article. It was well written to get her point across. Her use of the narrative is really what strengthened it. Her claims and theses would have been meaningless without the story that went along with it. I think this article is a good lesson on how powerful narratives can be for invoking emotions and persuading.
Tough conversations with good friends
