I was reading THIS ARTICLE on my feed today! And it was a pretty close representation of my own experience and feelings with gossip and trash talking. >> We've pretty much all been there. I know maybe one or two people on the PLANET that are so full of goodwill and sunshine that they never have a cross word to say about anything. There is a quote that says "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." and the first time I saw it on one of those motivational image thingers it made me stop and think! O_O I used to be a gossipwhore and trash talked a lot. I had a very negative point of few about things and other people, and to top it off I was a self-righteous know it all twat. >> And that quote made made think about what kind of person I was being! I didn't like that quality in other people, so why the hell was I doing it? These days I still sometimes slip up and fall in to the gossip or trashtalk trap. T_T But I tryyyyyyy to make an effort not sit around around talking about how shitty other people are being, and try to talk about positive qualities instead. Are YOU a gossip or a trash talker? Where do you usually slip up? Tell us about your experiences and stories!
