It`s good to keep your ears open, but you should be more selective about what you choose to believe. Can you tell a fact from a rumor? Some truths are too unpleasant to accept and some lies are too seductive to ignore. You may find yourself taking stock of your friendships and reexamining the reasons for them. Review is healthy in some cases, especially when it helps you remember and settle old debts. On the other hand, worrying too much leaves you distracted and restless. All that you really need is a good book and a few hours of solitude.
