Heard It Through The Grapevine

Usually the people who talk about us are the same people who don’t talk to us. If these people never have an actual conversation with us, then how can they possibly have anything to say about us? Gossip is a terribly ugly hobby, enjoyed most by those who have nothing better to do with their time.

Insecurities lead people to spread rumors and gossip about the people that they are comparing themselves to. These people would be well served to spend their time working through their self esteem issues, instead of spreading gossip. If we spend all of our time working on self improvements, we won’t have any time left to worry about other people and their lives.

We should make efforts to get to know people, rather than gossiping about them. Making assumptions and pretending to know someone’s business based solely on their social media posts or gossip isn’t healthy. We should be working on ourselves, connecting with other humans, and spreading some love instead.

  1. Agreed! Making assumptions can really trigger a life of unhappiness. Thank you for sharing this πŸ™‚

    I appreciate the kind of difference you are trying to make through such posts. I consider myself of the same nature as well. I do have a blog (https://thoughtsofahuman.home.blog/) where I occasionally post thought-provoking short stories and important articles upon our philosophy, emotions, mindfulness and life in general. Would appreciate a lot if you could check it out πŸ™‚

  2. Very true!! This is especially important for people who judge on the basis of certain blogs.
    Like (no offense) , I don’t know you, but I cannot make any assumptions about you just by reading few of your blogs. I’m no one to give you any kind of advice, just by reading your blogs. I guess that’s the boundary, every writer has set here. πŸ™‚
    Keep sharing Amber

  3. This is going to sound terrible, but I have been on the wrong side of this equation all too many times. My social anxiety makes it really hard to talk to people, so what I know if them is generally what I hear. I have worked so so so much in things and I try super hard to talk to people rather than letting other people influence me, but dang it’s a hard journey.

    Thanks for reminding me how important it is to be mindful of the things… in our minds and on our tongues.

    1. I have struggled with social anxiety at times. It can be hard!πŸ˜”I wrote this long ago when I still used social media and others used it to gossip and create rumors and drama. I deleted my social media.πŸ˜‚Everyone at some point is guilty of gossip and such. Being mindful like you said is what’s important. We all need love and kindness.❀️❀️Thank you for reading!✨

  4. I couldn’t agree more!!! I have been the victim of gossip, as has my daughter, and it is so hurtful and disrespectful. Any kind of character assassination goes so deep to the core, and is very difficult to contend with! We need to be kind, to ourselves and to others!!! πŸ˜”
