How to change the subject with love

I was loudly complaining to a friend about some injustice I had just suffered because someone was being mean to me. “She has the nerve to say all this stuff behind my back, but she’s too much of a coward to say it to my face.” My friend was listening and hooting right along with me and then she said,“She’s so jealous of your good life that she has to keep talking smack about you!”

I stopped.

Wow.  

Talk about a defining moment.

Look at what I was doing. I was wasting time complaining about someone that couldn’t hear me and probably didn’t care what I thought anyway.

Think about that.

Now let’s find something really great to change the subject with.
