Last week someone asked me about a rumor they had heard

Last week someone asked me about a rumor they had heard. I owned it; yes, I owned my mistake, sin, choice or whatever you may call it, with no excuses or blame. There are circumstances and details that I do not share with others. Why? Five reasons:
1. No one really cares.
2. My story like yours has lots of chapters and some are not very pretty.
3. You don’t have to blow out someone else’s candle in order to shine brighter yourself.
4. Once you’ve apologized you have to live with the consequences but keep moving forward.
5. There is more to our stories that impacts our lives than others know and even some we struggle to face ourselves.
A final thought: If you’ve got time to talk about me, I’m flattered, but you need a life of your own.
Just a thought!
