Gossip at homes, at offices, at pubs, at malls , at cafe's, at graves, at terminals, at weddings, at birthdays, at morgues.... How disgusting. Why not try to grow ?
Let us consider three simple facts of life. One, everyone starts with a diaper and ends with a diaper. Two, everyone dies. Three, everyone gossips. The first two cannot be altered or changed. The third, with a little conscious effort can be abandoned. You may ask, “What’s life without gossip?” Well, I have the answer; life can be better sans gossip. Gossiping is an age old vice and social networking. A faceless networking that can fracture minds and shatter souls. A gossiping foul mouth is the devil’s postbag. You sit next to someone because you have got nothing nice to say about somebody. Nature has given you one face, you gossip and you make yourself another. That’s pretty ugly. People may forget words you say but they will never forget how you made them feel. It’s a horrible feeling. Think twice before you indulge in gossip, before you wag your tongue, before you tune up your ears. Point not your finger when you carry a dirty mind.
Gossip is nothing but bad friends stabbing you in the back. Good friends always hit you on the face. Stab not, please. And where do I stand? You can say anything about me as you please, but I am what I am and that’s something that you can never be. Don’t let people tell you who you are, show them. Gossip is keeping a secret when telling the truth will hurt someone. Why hurt? Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip. And remember, who gossips with you will gossip about you.
