It can feel like gossip is a national pastime. Since everyone “talks,” it might seem there’s little at stake by joining the conversation. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Let me be honest. I’ve failed in this area more than I would like to admit. I write hoping to help others avoid some of the mistakes I’ve made. If so, it’s worth it.
A few weeks ago I was volunteering locally and looking forward to meeting a new mom. But after about 15 minutes I knew it probably wasn’t a relationship I’d be investing a lot of time into.
