Have you experienced being the topic of gossip or rumors for some people you may or may not personally know? Did you receive any negative comments about you from other people? I don’t think anyone of us is immune to such things, but when it does happen, initially it always seem to catch us off the ground.
Today I got curious about what gossip is really all about because of an incident that happened. Without going into further detail, what I do know is that this person may have either misunderstood what I said or made up an entirely different and untrue story about me. In the end, I clarified it with someone who have received this so-called unfortunate news from that gossiper and was okay with my explanation.
What I learn from these and other experiences is that as long as I know what I’m doing is right, then I claim personal power in standing up for myself. The problem lies in some people misunderstanding what you said or even have malicious intention to ruin you. But all I can do is forgive them in prayer, for they do not sometimes know what they do.
There may be both good and bad things that come out from gossip, as this article suggests. But what’s not mentioned is that those who are jealous or have malicious intent towards others also have things going on in their lives. Rather than succumbing to their actions, I’d suggest you rather continue doing your own thing and work your damn hardest and smartest to make your dreams and goals come true. It’s their choice anyway to do those things and it’s only them who have the power to decide whether to change for the better or continue doing whatever they’re doing. This is one of the reasons why I tend to go towards people whom I feel they bring light, love, and positive energy into my life. Gossipy people, or negative people in general, tend to drain one’s energy if not aware. And I hope you find value in yourself so you can stand up against all those haters, and this advice from the late Leonard Nimoy aka Spock may help you find your own way.
The more you love and respect yourself, the more time you have to improve on yourself and building your own garden of goals manifesting into reality. At some point, you are only spreading positivity into other people’s lives. And if they feel jealous or gossipy towards you, then shrug them off and move on to people who will accept and love you.
My aim for this article, and for the entire blog for that matter, is to bring light and love into other people’s lives. And if this has helped you in any way, do let me know. Let me know too if I’ve missed anything, or if you have similar experiences and how you’ve overcome gossip. Feel free to share your thoughts below, and many blessings to you.
