The Confidant Tells
They call me friend and they trust me or should I say feel comfortable with me to share the goings on in their lives. I often listen and sometimes offer a kind word or two. I have learned over the years that there are certain people that you just do not ask the dreaded question when you see them. We all know what the question is but tend to use it causally as a greeting not thinking about what response you will get. I think we should all refrain from using the greeting unless we are interested in knowing the answer.
