For much of my life I relished gossip wherever I could find it. I latched onto rumor and innuendo with an alacrity that I wasn’t applying to other areas of my life. They provided excitement. It They led me to deal with anything other than what I needed to tend to.
I’m different now. I have serious work to do. The clock is ticking. I no longer feel I can fritter away time.
More importantly, relationships matter a whole lot more. Relationships grounded in candor. In clear, open, and honest communication. In the here and now. In what is more than what could, would, or should happen.
Trafficking in gossip no longer suits me. Conjuring up and getting lost in drama takes me away from who I need to be and what I need to do.
That’s why I’ve decided to quit the drama and leave all that it entails to the theater majors.
