Article: To be a Gossip Girl!!
So in the recent months or so, I have been in the center of gossip central, I felt like one of the gossip girls. Truth be told, ALL WOMEN GOSSIP! Don’t deny it, you do in some kind of way, you may not call it gossip, maybe you may call it, passing of information, looking at her at a critical point of view or reflecting on her mistake. But it all comes down to gossip.
Webster Definition – one of the definitions is “a person who habitually reveals personal or sensational facts about others”
But what bothers me the most is women who deny that they gossip; they act all righteous and create a major drama when they find out from another source that a certain someone was gossiping about them. They will go on to calling the person names and go how dare you talk about me blah blah blah! But at the end of the day, they do the same thing.
Look at it this way, will give the characters initials H, S, and D. The scenario is H found out through S that D was talking about her and her current situation. and how did S know that D was talking about H , is because S and D were sitting together and talking about H, both of them commenting on H’s situation. But then S goes and tells D that H was gossiping about her and her situation. So the fact that H and S are talking about D, isn’t that gossiping to?
I am not saying that gossiping is good or bad, am just saying that ALL WOMEN DO IT, so don’t be surprised if you hear someone talks about you or gossip. Just let it go, and move on. Don’t create drama as if you never gossip because you do. It’s in our nature to talk about others, whether in a good way or in a bad way. We do it!
