Backbiting

Last night a friend stopped by to find some solace from a situation she’s dealing with at home. I was eager to lend an ear but it became quickly apparent that my willingness had more to do with a desire to gossip and pontificate than to bear witness.

I suspect that I have often been like this but rarely had my own behavior been so glaringly obvious. I already sent her a text apologizing but the fact is that I really need to work on my speech.
