Everywhere I go, I overhear people talking about other people. I hear people talking about their co-workers, their boss, their spouse, their kids, some crazy person that cut them off in traffic, some person at the hair salon that was rude or just strange, etc. It’s an incredible fascination isn’t it?
We just love talking about other people. I’m not just talking about the G word… “Gossip”. A lot of what we say about others IS gossip, but I’m really just drawing attention to our desire to talk about OTHER people. I guess it’s just part of our human DNA. We’re relational beings…and so we talk about the people we relate with.
