IF YOU GOSSIP, READ THIS (REPOST FROM MY FB)

As you walk along the corridors each and every morning at school, do people stop and stare? Do you suddenly hear whispers and get the feeling that eyes are all over you? Do you get that tense and heavy feeling, as if you just ran a thousand km just to get so sweaty that you suddenly get the idea that you've lost a lot? (I know, it's all crap). Well, you're not alone.

I don't get it. I know someone of great achievements and amazing personality, but, as we all possess, flaws and actions of regret come about once again. I know you get my point, even though you haven't read the whole note yet. People make a biggy big deal on 'her' negatives rather than the positives. They spread rumors, not only the one they've heard of, but something a bit more.. More in a sense that it just became a little, no, scratch that- a LOT worse. Where does this lead us to? Shame on her, shame on him, shame on you and me. Shame on us all.

And after doing all the chitter chatter to other people, what if 'she' found out? Confrontations. Yep, you got that right. This will lead to ego issues, then your voices will tone up, then the next thing you know? You've got a whole crowd up and running just to do the thing you did, and make your reputation a wreck as well.

I hope this will serve as a tool to make people realize that gossip won't make you any prettier, smarter, or even famous, for that matter. It will only prove that insecurity runs in every single vein in your body, and that neither you nor the victim (but when you really think about it, both are victims) are safe. Think about it.
