One of my many regrets is being a snarky little turd in middle school. At the time, I thought gossiping about other people made me more connected to my friends and made me seem mature and cool. Wrong on all counts. While I do not live a completely snark-free existence these days, I am also keenly aware of how much better I feel about myself when I focus on the positive attributes of others.
When it comes to talking behind peoples back, I don't really understand why we keep the positive things we say about someone to ourselves. Actually I do get it--it has something do with feeling awkward and vulnerable sharing our feelings of any kind. Even positive ones.
With Storied, I provide a space where you can talk through what you love about other people, within the context of a story, and joyfully share it with them. If you are ready to harness the power of gossip for good, please reach out and let's get started!
Your grocery store line UsWeekly reading friend,
P.S. Some more chatter on this in the next few weeks but I am renting an office space in South Portland and excited to start in-person interviews there in May!
