If you really love gossiping this can be a alarming post for you. Someone said it well: “Small people talk about other people, mediocre people talk about things, and great people talk about ideas.”
A gossip is listened in haste and shared at leisure. A gossip never minds his own business because he has neither a mind nor a business. A gossip is more concerned about what one overhears than what it hears. Gossip is the art of saying nothing in a way that leaves nothing unsaid.
Always remember, people who gossip with you will also gossip about you in your absence. Gossiping and lying are closely related. Gossip can lead to slander and defamation of character. People who listen to gossip are as guilty as those who do the gossiping. Gossip has no respect for justice. It breaks hearts and makes the innocent cry, it ruins lives and careers, and it is cunning and malicious.
Next time time while gossiping you must check that whether you are saying positive things about others or negative? And do you enjoy and encourage others to spread rumors? Does your conversation begin with, “It should be between us and don’t tell anyone?” Gossips have seldom to do with truth. The worst part about this habit is that you do not realize when it becomes your necessity and even you indulge in spreading rumors.
