First of all, I’m not an anonymous kind of gal. Even though I might write under a pen name, my real friends know exactly who I am. Usually if I have something to say I’m going to take full credit for it by signing my name and if I want to read something on the Internet, I’m surely not going to hide my presence behind an anonymous proxy server. Ask anybody that knows me. Don’t want me to have an opinion? That’s simple. Don’t engage me. Don’t like my opinion? That’s simple too. Don’t engage me.
I’ve taken measures in the past to remove myself from the radar of people I think are toxic and all that I have ever asked is that my space be respected. In my opinion, this is a healthy move. If you’re on the receiving end of a friend’s silence and you aren’t hearing a response from them, it’s because they don’t have anything else to say to you. Wouldn’t you rather it remain that way? Wouldn’t you like it if people that didn’t like you just left you alone? Well, that’s not always going to be your destiny if you hurt people you leave behind in your polluted wake.
So listen up!
Whatever words folks spread around are merely that…words. Gossip is something created by an idle mind and has no business entering yours. While they suffer from delusions of their own making, you need to be out living your life and doing pretty much whatever you want to do. And that is a cold, hard fact.
As for the person compelled to make up a story about someone to share with their friends, consider this; your story, your lie, carries with it the power of karma. And karma, as we all know, is a bitch with very sharp teeth.
Before you go slinging mud take a good look in the mirror first.
Are you happy?
Are you living your best life?
Do you have everything you want?
Does the Universe smile on you by granting the blessings of friends you can trust, people that love you and family that has your back?
Are you being all that you can be and living everyday to the fullest?
If you can’t answer yes to all of those questions, then you have some serious work to do on yourself. Don’t waste your breath trying to bully others into changing who they are because they already know who they are and it will knock the wind right out of you. Besides you can’t fix anyone, so remember…
Fixing me will never fix you.
Til next time…Madeline has no time for gossip folks, she’s writing a blog! Stay tuned!!
