What’s the story about?
Story Description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach about the need for Self-Mentoring when you are a victim of false rumors and trying to get to the bottom of a he said – she said situation. Have you ever had one of those he said / she said situations where you are not sure who to believe? That’s what happened to Cindy and Emily.
Troublemaker Donny decided to make trouble for both Emily and Cindy. He would tell Emily that Cindy spread a rumor about her. He would tell Cindy that Emily was spreading a rumor about her. Emily’s inner wisdom alerted her that Donny was lying; therefore, she did not take the rumor seriously. Unfortunately, Cindy believed Donny was telling the truth. She was determined to get revenge on Emily for tainting her name. Would Cindy realize the truth before it was too late?
