HOW DO I HANDLE MY GOSSIPING FRIEND?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

One of my friends is always gossiping about our friends and I feel very uncomfortable. How should I handle this?

—Uncomfortable (United States)

DEAR UNCOMFORTABLE:

First, be very careful what you say to this friend because he/she is likely to gossip about you in the same way he/she does about others.

Second, you might want to mention you don’t feel comfortable hearing gossip about your other friends. If the gossiping continues after this point, change the subject to something more positive. You might want to also consider if you really want to spend as much time with this friend.

Great awareness of your feelings in this energy. Thank you.
