    It Broke My Heart

    I am totally against gossip it hurts innocent people. It was years ago a friend of mines and a man was found dead out on the street. It hurt me so bad because I later learn that people had spread so many rumors about them. So many versions of what had went on. Every-time I turn...

    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...

    Us Against The World... Or Vice Versa

    This is probably a normal experience, but it’s true. It’s a story that probably happened to every single person on that earth, or maybe not. But no matter what the answer is, it’s about gossip. It’s about lies that become rumors. And most importantly, it’s a problem...

    Grow Up And Be Happy

    The world is full of unsolicited opinions and selfish ideas. Closed minds that are not able to grow and think the truth lives only in their hands. But it's up to us and nobody else whether we believe it or not. Nothing wrong by listening to what people have to say, but don‘t...

    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...

    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.
