"One can not hold another down in a ditch, without being in the ditch themselves. " --Cylithria Dubois
Lately, I've been on a gossip diet by attempting not to participate in gossip. I'm striving to not gossip about other people in my life. More than that, I'm actively avoiding the pervasive gossip industry.
You can't imagine how difficult it is to avoid gossip. Sometimes, it seems like all people talk about. Who did this? Who did that? Who broke up with whom? While I find people intriguing, in order to even listen, I must step into someone else's judgements.
Truth be told? I feel better when I'm not participating in gossip. I have clearer thoughts and am less afraid of the world. The problem is that these toxic thoughts, articles and photos are addictive and pervasive.
It's time for me to clean up my act. There's no place for gossip in my kind life. Period.
Why do you think there's so much of this now? What inside us is drawn to the tawdry details of second rate actors?
