You can’t keep others quiet so be very careful with who you trust your secrets to. Some people aren’t as much of a friend to you as you think they are. And others would rather be “respected” as the town crier who knows everything. Don’t be a pawn in their games and choose your friends wisely.
This weeks messages seem to revolve around communication. Be careful how and with who you’re communicating with.
Respect is earned, not given. Make sure those you are talking to have earned your respect enough to tell them your secrets. Some “friends” are less confidants than they are acquaintances. They would much prefer to be the “go to” person for news in town than the person who could be trusted with a secret.
Make sure you’re sharing your secret to share in a celebration and not to brag, or gloat. Make sure your secret isn’t news that someone else shared with you.
Trust is somewhat a lost art in our busy social media world today. It’s a trait that deserves a great deal of respect when it’s earned. Ask yourself why are others surprised when they finally hear news that you’ve known for months. Do they have such a low opinion of you? Or do they expect you to be like everyone else and betray the confidence that was given to you so easily?
You may find that you get much further in your mission, your goals and your position by being someone who can be trusted. It’s an honorable title to wear and it’s even more humbling when others trust you with private information, because they have to tell someone or they’ll bust. Not only may you be the first to know! But you could also be the first to help them celebrate. How kewl is that?!
