My co-worker said the wisest thing today, and I thought I would share it with you.
When you gossip and spread rumors and talk smack about someone - instead of making them look bad and bringing down their reputation, you're actually making YOURSELF look bad.
Kindness is always the best policy.
Think of our lives as a less glamorous episode of gossip girl. Sure we don't live in million dollar new york apartments nor do we shop regularly at Barneys... But, we do gossip.
We watch the episodes, and we have seen their lives being TORN apart because of gossip and rumors. Friendships, not just reputations, are ruined.
We watch these shows, think - what horrible people. But, if you spread a rumor, you are no better.
Rumors ruin people.
Rumors crush people's spirits.
And if you are the one spreading the rumor: you end up looking just like a selfish, bitchy, and poorly dressed gossip girl character.
Stop the gossip.
