17 Nov GOSSIP and JUDGEMENT
Gossip and Judgement
Chances are you’ve been a victim of it, or have participated in it at some point of your life.
And… if you are dishing it out it doesn’t make you look better. It’s a temporary fake way to connect with others and it makes you untrustworthy and makes YOU look like a JERK.
This is a problem with friends, in schools, in work environments and especially on social media.
I was just scrolling my Fb feed and saw someone had posted another girls picture and was ripping her apart publicly.
What was the intention? What was the point of that?
To start a gossip thread?
To make themselves feel better?
To make the victim feel terrible?
Did they this would gain them clients? To make friends?
The post and the comments that followed… Just wow. The whole thread of people negative ripping on this woman’s picture. Her appearance specifically. Judging, name calling and more. All feeding off of eachothers negative comments.
And this happens daily in life. We’ve all witnessed it and likely been a part of it.
Judgement is human nature.
We alllll do it.But what you DO with that judgement, now that’s a reflection of your character.
To those of you doing it please ask yourself what your INTENTION of doing it is. You may surprise yourself.
To those of you who have been victims of it PLEASE KNOW that it’s not a reflection of YOU but it IS a bad reflection of the person dishing it out.
To those of you witnessing it, make it stop with you. Don’t engage it. I’m committed to working on this too.
I know that I cannot single handedly end gossip and public judgement but I’m hoping by sharing this I may get you to stop and think.
What goes around comes around and if you want good things coming your way- dish the good out too.
Be the person who NEVER says a bad thing about anyone.
Be the person who lifts others up.
Be the person who talks about others in an amazing light.
Surround yourself with others that live THIS way.
You are not too old and it is not too late to change anything you want… including the need to judge and gossip publicly.
