KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery


Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you.

~ Spanish proverb ~

Gossip can kill the trust in a Twelve Step program. We all need to feel safe when we share our personal lives with others. We need to know our private business won’t be spread around.

We can do two things to help keep the trust in our groups, and in the rest of our lives too. First, don’t gossip. Second, don’t listen to gossip about others.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me mind my own business today. Help me honor the trust of my friends by not gossiping.

Action for the Day

Today, I’ll think of two ways to stop someone from telling me gossip. Then, I’ll put those ways to use.
