Quotes-A Quote of Great Wisdom- “A Listening Ear Can Be A Running Mouth”

Today I am going to share a quote of great wisdom.  These are wise words from a site called Cheers I found on Pinterest.

In my mind, another way to say this is “be careful who you trust.” If you share too much, it may come back to haunt you. 

This quote just means that we should think twice about who we share our heart with.  If we have something we want to share that we need to share, we should be cautious about who we decide to trust to keep it to themselves. 

Many times when we are going through a difficult time, we have the need to share to vent.  Sharing your story when you are in distress is therapeutic. I think we need to ask the questions…

  • Can I trust this person?
  • Can this person be discrete with what I am sharing?
  • Will this information in some way damage or hurt the person I want to share with?

I hope you have many good friends that you can share your deepest feelings with, friends you can trust.

The moral of the story is to think before you speak.

Happy Monday Everyone
