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 gossip  see the things they dislike in themselves in other people. Some people don't recognize their own jealousy, girls talk bad about another girl because it makes them feel better about themselves and if you are not careful you can end up judging someone for the wrong reasons. Men do it too but in different ways. What people don't realize is that they didn't make themselves feel better by insulting someone or spreading rumors or lies about someone, they only make the target of their hate feel bad. People that do these things don't realize that everyone has problems and insecurities. I truly believe in treating others how you would like to be treated.

If the secret sorrows of everyone could be read on their forehead, how many who now cause envy would suddenly become the objects of pity.

 Everyone has their problems, I don't find that it is useful to hate people that lie and gossip but I do pity them. They have a lot of growing up to do and it probably wont be very fun for them. People that do these things always get caught and ultimately get called on their immature behavior. when someone is gossiping I try to walk away. When I know that someone lies alot, I don't take anything they say seriously.
