Happiness Tip 40
Vivienne Barnes, Happiness Coach
Waterfall photo by Andrei Niemimaki
Welcome to week 40

The next time you find yourself talking to another about someone you both know, and you are saying either positive or negative things about the 'other', it can be dangerous to assume they are in agreement with you..they may have entirely different thoughts or experiences of the 'other' and for whatever reason choose to say nothing..

..you see, it takes a brave person to challenge what is being said especially in company with several others..especially if at the person's home enjoying their hospitality...

..and deep unhappiness can result from 'assuming' a friend is in agreement and discovering at some later date that they are not..and possibly feeling offended!
..saying 'nothing' does not mean 'agreeing'...I suggest watching out for this..
