Just Saying.



Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you.

{ Spanish Proverb }

. . . . .


Isn't it quite fascinating that there are people who tell you how much they do not like a certain person (because she's this and that, they'd say) and then the next thing you know, they are all chummy with this person they actually dislike?

We all have the right to change our mind about someone.

BUT I think it is also wise NOT to judge anyone (and then be chummy-chummy with the person like as if you did not say those unkind words behind her back). As CBB would always say, if we ever have to judge people, judge them on the positive.

That, or stand by your nega judgment and never befriend the person you dislike.

. . . . .

The people who are quick to say that someone is 'plastic' are actually the same people whose sincerity is questionable.

It's true what Anais Nin said: "We don't see things as they are. We see them as we are."

It is called *Projection.

. . . . .

It has been two weeks since the elections and some people are still bitter.

Isn't it time to move on?

. . . . .

* Projection is a defense mechanism that involves taking our own unacceptable qualities or feelings and ascribing them to other people. {about.com}

Pin It!

I have to say that to gossip is either a disease or an entertainment... when idle minds don't have anything profound to talk about... when it's just fun to discuss about others rather than about oneself... because there is nothing wonderful to talk about anyway.

I agree with you, those who gossip have so much time on their hands. Or that they just want to feel better about themselves or their lives.

I believe in this 100%. To me, gossiping is not always bad. We can talk about other people all we want when they're not around, but if we stick to the facts and/or the positive then that should be OK. But when someone starts talking bad about somebody else, that's when it's gets annoying.

I do agree with you, Liz.
Sometimes, we do confide to friends about something someone did. Facts.

But when it becomes a habit of talking bad behind someone's back, that's evil.
Or when a person actually says something bad about someone,
and then gets all chummy with that someone,
I think that's not very sincere.
