We all know the saying- “treat others as you wish to be treated”- but how often are you truly living by that golden rule? Do you talk about friends and family the way you hope they talk about you?
When we purge gossip from our relationships we are able to invest more time in seeing the value of the people in our lives. One of my favorite proverbs is “The words of the tongue should have three gatekeepers: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?
Let’s all keep these three gatekeepers in mind as we converse with others. Use kind words that influence the people around you and inspire them to speak with the same level compassion.
