I know everyone doesnt like to hear it, but I just felt the need to address this real quick... so here goes
Just for second, think about how much time you spend a day gossiping. And dont start saying "Oh, I never gossip-" Because Thats most likely not true. Okay, now take that rough estimate, and split into two- The good gossip (Saying good things bout someone) and the bad gossip (saying mean things about someone. The good gossip number is probably way lower than the bad gossip.
Okay, so I'll admit, I do gossip a lot too, and its not always good. Altough, I do sometimes try to stay out of it and not get involved. For example, yesterday I was at the mall with a bunch of friends. We went to the food court, and they all started talking bad about another girl that wasn't there. I asked them to stop, but they just started talking about someone else. So I just sorta stayed out of it, and that was that.
As we all know, gossip usually is not right. A lot of the time if the person finds out you'll have really hurt them. Also, sometimes gossip can get exagerated, whichs can also lead to rumors, which also dont turn out good.
So next time you talk to your friends or really anyone, just watch what you say and who's around to hear it. Thanks to anyone who actually took the time to read this.
