Show Notes

Since moving back to Europe, I’ve noticed how much the conversations around me involve other people that aren’t in the room. Something about this is off to me—gossip isn’t something I consume or surround myself with. I don’t like it or find any value in it. But as I started reflecting and thinking about it more, it dawned on me that there are layers to gossip and different ways to experience it.

In this episode, I discuss all of these layers—the dangers and negative effects of gossip, but also the necessity of being validated by others and the challenges that come with navigating this fine line.
