I guess gossiping is just soooo juicy that we just can't get enough of it. Is it horrible?, yes but I guess it makes us feel so much better about ourselves that we are willing to throw someone else under the bus to get that feeling.
When I was in Middle School, I remember walking down the hallway, walking pass people, then hearing whispers about me and my personal life being spread all over school. In school I held my head high, ignored it and went on with class but at home, in my room I broke down and cried each night. So I know that people who say that gossip doesn't hurt them or they just don't care are really hurt the most.
It's kinda funny that even though I been through the gossiping/bulling thing....I STILL catch myself gossiping to this very day. It's crazy but now I try to help out others who seem to have trouble with dance moves instead of laughing. I try to improve my own dance moves or ask for help instead of feeling jealous or envy. It has helped alot and turn me into a better person.
While reading my "Teen Vouge" issue I came across an AD that talks about a FaceBook page called "Mean Stinks (click)". It's where people post their stories about how they went through bullying either physically, mentally, or emotionally. It can actually help and inspire you or someone you know that's going thourgh bullying.
Gossiping about not gossiping is great gossip!
