Do you gossip about people? What are your views about gossiping? I try not to but sometimes there is gossip and you can't help it. I prefer not to gossip because it isn't right and definitely I would want to be certain of attention for a gossip too. I want to treat people the way I want to be treated..

I only gossip about people with my mom and my sister,Rest I dont speak to people much about others,Nowadays I gossip with my mom in law also but I feel I should stop this habit.I generally speak less and is a calm person but sometimes few gossips are unavoidable so we can do atleast that much gossip.

Frankly my view of gossip is not a good thing to do. We should say something not in the back of other people. It is better to take to the person concerned and tell what his short comings are.

I agree with you.. It is horrible to gossip if someone has to gossip say to the person however I have to admit I had before but I had facts to prove myself. I don't like to talk nonsense. I try to refrain from it though cause it's just stupid and childih. Thanks for sharing and have a happy new year !!

hi,, If people around would speak and rumor gossip about me, I would be so shocked as I do not give reason for treating me this unfairly. I never engage in gossip as I so despise it, and would simply walk away from it. It is so detrimental to certain people and certainly is not a good feeling.

Thanks for sharing. Gossip happens and I dislike it too but it happens cause it's life but I try to refrain from it especially if friends bring it or something and if I do say something then facts must prove my statemen as I don't like to speak nonsense! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful new year :)

Shhhh........come closer....let me tell you a secret. You know about the rule of gossiping? It's a slant from the famous nike slogan...but in this case, it is "Don't do it." Words can kill....but words can also heal. Use your words right and you will be blessed. I am glad you yourself don't do it. Cheers to you, my friend. By the way, any gossip to share? Nah...just kidding.

i totally agree with you on that. i believe in a saying that what you don't know won't hurt you. that's what i want to do regarding gossips around me. i don't ask and i don't want to tell either.

yes i admit im also a gossipmonger at times but not all the time. thats what i want to change this newyear. i want it to be my newyears resolution to stop talking about other people. i think its below the belt to talk about someone who isnt around and who couldnt defend themselves.
