    Lies & Gossip

    I will never understand why people start lies and gossip.  It is very childlike and it can break someone's reputation and worse.  If anyone has a problem, why not talk about it or just leave it at that, no need beings untrutful.  If the truth comes out...

    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...

    Honesty

    I can't be completely open with anyone. For several reasons. Mainly lies and Gossip. I've been lied to for as long as I can remember, ever since I was little. What hurts the most is when it's the people I really trust, the ones I respect the most. It's hard for me to be the best...

    See The Scars??

    I think everyone has been burned by gossip and lies, and I am no different. After the past 8 months has gone by, I have seen (unfortunately) who are and are NOT my friends despite what comes out of the mouth. In my estimation, it is actions not words that tell the tale....and...

    Why We Gossip

    Gossip evolved as a way of keeping track with what everyone in the tribe was doing. It began when humans gathered in large tribes, which consisted of more people that one person could talk to or keep track up from day to day. Essentially, gossip becomes a filtration process that...

    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...

    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.

    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...
