Have you ever had false rumors spread about you? Suffered the consequences of malicious, damaging gossip? How did it effect you?

Oh yes...I try to remember something my grandmother used to say...if they are talking about you then they are giving someone else a break...plus she said...it won't be long until they move on to someone else..lol.

True true. You're grandmother is wise. I end gossip. When someone tells it to me, I don't tell anyone else. I don't tell other people what I hear about other people. I don't know if the information is true, and if it is, how does telling someone else benefit me? So I listen to what people have to say, and then I throw it out the window.

Alot of times , hahaha its as if i have a magnet for rumors always have a new one spreading in our neighborhood from time to time that makes me feel so bad most of the time. But hey after thinking bout lots of stuff and weighing the matter i told myself theres no need to be affected with these bad rumors about me, what matters is that i know myself that way and i know how to treat other people good then theres just nothin that i need to worry about. Your thyself and theres no one who will be able to bring you down, unless you let them. Thats what i tell myself whenever other people try to bring me down. I know myself than any of them. As easy as that

As long as you try to be your best, and treat others' well then people will see what type of person you are, and they'll second guess the rumors. I'm the same. I don't let any rumor bring me down, because I know its not true. Now I will be honest if it comes from my family it does upset me at first, but then I am able to find the funny side of it all. Some people say I never take anything seriously. Its not true. I take everything seriously. That's why I laugh at things, because what else can I do? Might as well make the best of it.

My teenage life was full of these false rumours being passed about me.As a youngster i could never understand why people spread these malicious rumours.But now i realise these people are despicable and one can only pity them.I hardly give credence to these rumours and do what i feel is best for me and those around me.

yep the only thing you can do is pity them. They need attention. They think that bringing other people down, brings them up. It doesn't though.

When I was working at the office, there were so much rumors and it was really a pain, there was a maid who was telling really bad things on others and she has a way of telling it like with me she tells about others and once with the others she narrates what I said, so at the end when we all came up to know,we had stopped talking to her completely because she was only creating rifts in our healthy relationship we share in the office.

oh yeah one of those people. The instigators. They go up to you and say "So and so said this about you. I think they are horrible." Trying to get you to say something about that person. Then when you do, they'll go over to that person and say "So and so said this about you." And they just keep it going.

Yeah I have... some people spread rumours about me to my boyfriend to try and split us up in the beginning, they tried to say that I was with my ex, and they made out that he was seen leaving my house in the early hours, and his car was always parked outside my place... well it was all untrue, it was just someone trying to be nasty, because they disliked me... truth is with everything that they had said to my boyfriend, it caused us to have so many arguments, and fall outs to the point where we nearly broke up a few times over it. Luckily this person said one last thing to my boyfriend, and because he knew the truth already, he then realised that everything that person said before was just evil lies, but it went on for a long time before he realised the truth, and it did cause many problems, that we did not have to go through.

Sheesh that's horrible. What is the point in trying to ruin someone's life? I mean if they did something to you, then it could be fun, but other than that, why?

No, well atleast I don't think I ever have. If someone were to start a rumour about me then I would be big enough to just ignore it. The only people who's opinions I care about are my family and friends, and those who know the real me would know the truth and would believe me if I were to deny any speculation. I just think people who like to gossip about others should really get a life of their own instead onf trying to interfere in other peoples.

Agreed. They're jealous about something the person has, and they're looking to take them down.
