Don't Be A Sucker...

 

Don't be a sucker

I have never much cared for that comment;
I have heard it spoken in such a way, that you knew
You never wanted to be a sucker...

We always have so many different situations going on at one time.
We have so many complex relationships that need attention!
"Usually all at once"

I desire to be more discerning in matters;
But, I also want to use discretion in matters!

I see a world that just divulges more information
 On private matters that is not necessary to repeat.

What ever happened to discretion?

News Flash
Don't believe everything you hear!
Don't believe everything you read!
Don't say everything that just pops into your pretty head!
Don't repeat what someone else has said if it will bring contention!

Discretion is being wise in such a way that brings truth into a lie!
Discretion uses words that bring things to light!
Discretion has a tone and timing that brings life!
Only when used in the right place at the right time...

We think it is okay to say anything we want to anyone in any place!

This is not using discretion...

A lady who is careful with her words will be considered wise.

I want to be careful in also what I believe and take to heart as to
What others might say to me!
Or what I say to others.

We need to be wise; not so trusting that we can be hoodwinked!
When in doubt of someones character;
Be a bit more cautious.

I have given this warning to younger women;
When you first meet someone, do not tell them all your
Interest or concerns to quickly.
It is better to give a small piece of your heart and;
 Then wait and see if they can be trusted!

There are many wolves parading around in sheep's clothing!

Be wise as serpents and gentle as doves...

Do you have any suggestions for us that will help us in becoming
More versed in using discretion?
We do want to share with others;
But what is too much information in your opinion?

I always tell my grandkids....if you say something make sure it is KIND. If what you say is KIND it will never be the wrong thing to say. xo Diana

What a great post, Roxy!! That is one of the reasons I got off Face Book was because of the drama and reading stuff that was really none of my (or anyone else's) business. One big thing I've learned in my life is that words can't be taken back. What we say or divulge never truly ever goes away. Thank you for your post!

Sometimes it just blows my mind to see what some people share on facebook these days...dirty laundry (and words) abound! Good post, Roxy and those suckers look SO tasty! :)

You are speaking truth here. I learned a long time ago not to trust too many people with information that I wanted kept private. There are very few people I will share with. I always enjoy reading your wisdom Roxy. Hope you are having a lovely Christmas season. I sure am.

Hugs, Vicky

So well put Rox, and I completely agree. Discretion is so important, and all too often disregarded. Such a needed post.
Love and Blessings my friend,
Pam

hugs,

Americans tend to be so open and friendly that we sometimes go overboard and share way too much. I have been guilty of this in the past, but I've learned it is better to be somewhat reserved. You can always open up more later, but you can't take back what you've said.

My philosophy is to never share anything I wouldn't want repeated. Regardless of the person, at anytime people can and will share something about another person for a wide variety of reasons.

It takes a very special friend to never repeat heartfelt shared feelings. I wish for everyone such a friend.
