It is unfortunate when you confide in someone and they betray your trust. A few days ago I said something to someone in a private conversation that got back to me through another person. It wasn’t a major deal, but it did pertain to my work and I would have preferred this person have kept the conversation private.
My observation is this: it doesn’t seem that you can trust anyone these days. “Lose lips sink ships” has always been my personal policy and I try to focus on keeping my mouth shut as it relates to things people have told me. I also ask people not to tell me anything that isn’t known to the general public that way if I do slip up, I’m not spilling info on something that shouldn’t be known.
I also hold myself accountable for talking a bit too much in the conversation. I should have been more aware and not said as much. Oh well, what’s done is done. Now I get to call this person and confront them, which isn’t my favorite thing to do.
Be careful who you tell things to!!
