Would I say it to their face?

Day 97


I engage in right speech.

I do not say anything away from someone that I would not say to their face.


No one likes to imagine, think, or know that they are being talked about behind their back.   Yet we have all done so to another, at least once in our lives.  One day I was speaking to my brother about a relative, who, it turned out, was standing right behind me.   What I was saying was not necessarily unkind, but it was not something I would have said directly to her.   I learned my lesson.   If I would not speak my words about another to their face, I should not speak them at all.
