In my current team I am the colleague who knows everything. I’ve found myself gossiping at times, completely abandoning work place ethics. I’m exaggerating but please note:
We are are in a period of promotions. Some controversial colleagues have been promoted. I don’t talk to much people in the team but the two or three I do, I have been able we have spoken about these promotions. I feel bad because with one I broke her trust by telling someone else and I feel awful. I felt so convicted in my spirit and it wasn’t intentional at all. I feel so disgusted that I’ve done this. God’s word advises us not to gossip. This isn’t me. I don’t want to be the team gossip. Although I only speak to 2-3 colleagues on a “deeper level” it’s work. No one can be trusted.
Should I confess to my colleagues I broke their trust by telling their promotion secret? We find out in two weeks..
EDIT: all my colleagues exchange information/gossip. But I’m trying to be a better person. I don’t want to engage in this anymore.
