honest... or rude?

"I'm just keeping it real!"
Honesty is an amazing thing. Jesus said that knowing the Truth will set you free, in fact. It opens up doors into place that are otherwise hidden, whether you're sharing something with another person or they're sharing something with you. 
Can you be too honest?
Some would argue you can't, and insist upon sharing their perspective on everything withought considering if it should be heard. Others will use honesty as a cover to be a jerk.
You've recognized this when you've felt this, right?
Have you recognized this when you've dispensed it?  
When does honesty cross the line? Is it all in the tone, or is it all in whether it's even necessary?
"Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive.
(1 Corinthians 10:23)
