GOSSIP~How easy it is to be a part of it? It is a very difficult act to refuse. It’s considered “peer pressure” amongst adults~Not just for women, men too!
How many times in your life have you encountered a scenario where two or more people are talking about another person in a negative way? Part of you really wants to hear what’s being said, but that “little voice” inside you says, “Walk away from this!” However, have you realized that more than likely, you too, will be a subject of one of these conversations? It seems no one is exempt.
I have to admit that I’ve been a participant, as well. It’s almost too easy to become a participant in a “gossip” conversation. On the other hand, we can make a choice…..we can walk away from the conversation, as difficult as it may be. There’s too much else going on in the world than to worry about what “Mary” did! Don’t you think? Are YOU a participant? Don’t we all have better things to do?
It’s one thing to talk to a friend and vent your frustrations in order to solve a problem, but if it’s gossip, will it ever solve anything? Simple answer: NO.
Walk away or change the conversation. You will feel better about yourself.
