Don't Tell Other People's Stories

A self-indulgent walk down memory lane in honor of my 30th birthday with a daily picture from each year of my life and a lesson I've learned somewhere along the way.


2001


When we found out I was pregnant with twins I told a very small group of close friends. I would have waited but I needed help packing and moving and I wasn't allowed to pick up anything heavy. My news spread like wildfire and it broke my heart that I didn't get the chance to tell people my exciting news. How often do you get the chance to tell people that you're pregnant, much less with twins?? Then, when Baby A didn't make it, I had to make a very painful and awkward general announcement about it because so many people knew.

Then, with all my church stuff...I'm sure you can imagine the gossip.

Other people's stories are theirs to tell. Don't tell their bad stories OR their good stories without permission. Focus on your own stories.
