G is for Gossip – April’s May Alphabet

This one is short and sweet.

Gossip – Don’t Do It.

Our culture is awash in gossip.  Always has been, always will be.  That doesn’t mean you have to be a part of it.

Some of my biggest friendship fails have been because I foolishly took part in mean conversation – or, more to my shame, started it.  The burning of conviction – that I had done wrong to someone, whether they ever heard about it or not – is one of the worst feelings in relationship.  So avoid the burn – Speak kindly, and expect the same of your peers.  Where there is unkindness, absent yourself quickly.

Thoughts to ponder:

Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you.  ~Spanish Proverb

Gossip needn’t be false to be evil – there’s a lot of truth that shouldn’t be passed around.  ~Frank A. Clark
