I’m so sick and tired of gossip. It surrounds me and it seems like there’s some days where it consumes me when I want nothing to do with it. Talking poorly of others is infectious, it’s the most contagious thing. People have nothing to talk about so they bond over speaking badly of others. I try to ignore it and I try not to contribute but I have to try harder. I truly think it’s been bombarding me lately because I have yet to overcome it, I’m being tested or something. But starting today I am done. I WILL be a better person. The things we say and feel towards others reflect back on ourselves. Other people, even strangers, are merely a projection of our inner selves. The things you hear and say about people are things you could easily be saying about yourself without even knowing it. Pay closer attention and you’ll realize it’s true - especially if you believe in laws of the universe. There’s a reason you know these people regardless of whether you want to or not.
