And what’s the harm – really?
If I only tell one person, then that’s OK isn’t it…?
Or should I try and be ‘good’ and not indulge at all?
And when does talking about someone else become gossip, anyway?
One of my counselling tutors used to quote an old Yiddish proverb:
“Gossip hurts 3 people:
- The one who gossips
- The one talked about
- The who listens and now has ‘guilty knowledge’ “
