ON GOSSIPERS AND RUMORMONGERS

It’s important to be careful and discerning of things we are told. No matter how tempting it is to get into all the juicy details, there are three sides to every story. When you are on the receiving end of gossip, it’s best to pause and ask yourself:

  1. What do I get out of this information? How will it help me if I know this?
  2. Am I directly involved? Can I talk to the person to clarify the truth?
  3. Is it necessary that I spread this around?

Also when it comes to gossipers, remember that if they can gossip about others, they can definitely gossip about you.
