Bringing out the best …
Several years ago I was working with a couple who were deciding whether they wanted to continue their marriage or bring it to an end; they chose the latter. Both were concerned about the family gossip. They didn’t want to feed it so what were they to say? I suggested for them to share they were ending their marriage because they were no longer bringing out the best in each other. I also suggested they didn’t need to say any more or less.
Though being human … there are times when we feel we have to explain ourselves, especially to family and friends and sometimes doing so the emotion button gets activated.
Have you ever said something in the heat of the moment only wishing you could retrieve it? Saying a little bit and that didn’t seem like it was enough to make sense, so you felt the need to say more and it wasn’t enough either, oh gosh… feeling yourself getting in deeper and deeper?
Being human … some of us have too much time on our hands … and we gossip. Where there is gossip there is drama and nothing good comes from either.
Steering clear of gossip is reflective of personal development...
Wayne Dyer the “father of motivation” shares when his children would begin to gossip, he wouldn’t participate. He would say since (child’s name) isn’t here to defend themselves I will. That brought a halt to the gossip and drama.
Bringing out the best … is a conscious decision looking beyond our immediate needs and determining that which serves the highest good of all and implementing it.
