    Signs Of Immaturity

        I know that every person has a reason for the way they are. That being said I also know that lies and gossip are signs of immaturity. When people lie it is usually because they feel like the truth about them is boring or inadequate in some way. People that...

    Oh! I Hate Them!

    I hate lies and gossip! When I hear it being spread around. I will take the gossiper/liar to the person they are spreading hateful **** about and seek out the truth right then and there. That usually ends the **** and makes the gossiper/liar look like a fool! No better way to...

    Promises

    I don't understand how my friend wants me to be honest and open with them when its consistently proven that they will not keep a secret. I don't like gossip, I can't stand it in fact, whenever I hear people gossiping I tense up and I start to feel out of place.

    People Can Be So Shallow

    Who doesn't hate lies and gossip, right? (Unless you're the person who makes them -_-). I'm a sort-of invisible person in school. I'm the quiet girl sitting in the corner who makes the least fuss and is easily forgotten. So, there aren't many lies and gossip about me. Even if...

    Immature And Uncaring

    I can understand the concept behind the white lies that protect another feelings. I don't really know if I agree with it and I personally don't bother with them. I am learning tact, but I still won't lie for any reason. I can also understand the self-protecting and the for...

    Grow Up And Be Happy

    I Never Wanted To Be "in" In The First Place
