Ah Gossip. Running around the community like
unfettered jack rabbits.
When it's about you, and you finally hear about it-- after years have gone by-- well it just doesn't matter.
The world we live in is always critical of everyone.
If you are happy--
well you are tooooo happy.
If you are depressed---
you don't have enough backbone.
If you have money problems---
you have it coming.
If you are wealthy--
I'm sure you cheated to get it.
It seems like the status quo is still the status quo.
If you have the chance to say something bad about someone-- just say "bless, their heart"
When people feel powerless gossip lends a sense of power, schadenfreude, and revenge, especially when there will be no courage to speak in person. I say lend-- because it is temporary. The gossiper knows that it is violent and toxic to them.
How to keep going on living with joy and hope?
