Followup regarding earlier post
So a while back I posted about how someone at my place of work was talking about me to another coworker, and I wasn't sure whether or not to confront the issue (and the person).
Everyone said to keep it under my hat, so I kept it under my hat.
Fast-forward to now, and this person made a couple of comments directly to me that confirm and extend my previous suspicion that there is something more at stake here.
So again, I am wondering whether I should confront the issue- especially since this was something said directly to me- and if so, what's the best way to go about it.
I'm not sure I care so much what this person thinks about me, except that I can't avoid regular interaction. I'm more worried about what their opinion might mean to others, who have more influence and would be more useful to have on my side.
