Have you ever asked yourself if you should tell all to your partner, friend or lover? Have you ever listened to basic gossip about a friend or relative from another? Have you ever heard something said by another that you know is not true and let it go? Have you heard remarks about yourself that you know are not true? You realize that those spreading gossip are very small minded and do not have much in their own lives. They feel important but do not deserve respect, spreading cruel remarks.
There is never a time when it is right to pass on gossip whether it is true or false. The fact is we all have our own outside and inside selves and it would be up to us to divulge what we want to whoever we like. So many lives have been changed for the worse by idle gossip, and I for one look at where it comes from.
I have learned that you should be very selective about what you say about yourself to anyone, because like it or not, they will form an opinion and it may not be what you have in mind. This includes the ones you love, relative, friend or lover.
Over the years I have listened to people crush another and I had the courage to stand up on their behalf .Call out these cruel, harmful people on their behaviour. When they are turned on it is amazing how meek they become. Stop remarks like he has a drinking problem, they are lazy, don't trust them etc.
We all like to put our best foot forward and in kindness remember that. Walk away from the gossip and you will be doing your small part is changing the world for the better.
