There are days I grow weary of the shaming and the gossip. When mean folks gossip it’s their way of using shame to try to control you. That’s what gossip is. It’s a method of controlling the way other people see you. Good people can see through that, but others aren’t quite as evolved and tend to enjoy the shaming process.
When someone says, “it’s just one tiny bit of gossip! Get over it!” I always wonder how they would feel if I stepped a bit to the right and displayed the millions of tiny bits of gossip I’ve been asked to get over. The weight of it is staggering, especially on days more gets heaped on. It’s enough to make you never want to go outside or ever talk to another living soul.
But eventually I will push and I will shove this newest bit behind me into the pile with the others and I will continue living my life as if it never happened.
I can do this now because you see, I am not the person they gossip about anymore. I am not afraid and I will not keep their secrets. I have long ago moved away from the mean behavior of people and OMG! I am so much better than they are. 🙂❤️
Don’t let the gossip get you down. As long as they’re talking about you, they can’t hurt anyone else. And really, isn’t that kind of like being a superhero?
