Had a former colleague reach out to me about a personal problem he was running into. This happens to me frequently since I have a good reputation for 1. being truthful, objective, and compassionate and 2. for keeping my mouth shut about information shared with me in confidence.

The topic today is conversing with others about sensitive topics.


  • In general, don't ever talk about sensitive topics with anyone who is not your spouse. This may sound extreme, but is actually correct.
  • If you must talk about sensitive topics with someone else, be prepared for that information to be divulged.
  • If you do talk about a sensitive topic publicly, be very secure in your life situation.

That's really about it.
