    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...

    I would like to call out EP

    for posting false information from another user about me. I've flagged what has been said and EP has done nothing about it. Just because EP didn't post it themselves doesn't mean they can't be held responsible for publishing false information.

    Here's what went down!

    Someone I know is seeing someone that they shouldn't be seeing and doing a very bad job of hiding it. This other group of people lied to the person having the Nefarious relationship (greatly exaggerated because I like the word) and said I told them all about it! I said your own...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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

    The bids flap their wings. The cheetahs run. But I can't even walk, to get away. Voices droning on and on about who said what and what so-and-so wore to the dance boom in my head. While they wish they could be asked out by some guy, I wish to flee from this dirt that is all they...

    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...
