I do really well at this, until I’m in a group of people who are gossiping. Why is it you(at least I) feel compelled to add in?? Is it because the only other option is to stand there silently. Is it the lack of REAL topics floating around in my brain??
Maybe that will be my goal. Whenever someone is being gossiped about I’ll either say something positive about that person or attempt to change the subject. If that fails… discreetly remove myself from the conversation til the topic changes. This will be hard. Harder than it should be unfortunately. 2 months ago
