Gossip…….why do we do it? Believe me I am not taking the high moral ground as I’ve probably done it in the past! But this week I have been the subject of the buzzing grapevine myself! Apparently, people have more information on me than I have on myself. It is sickening to be the one talked about and to hear half-truths repeated back to my family and friends! Apparently, I’m not well you know! Well I wish someone had told me!!! It’s not nice and I hope I remember that the next time I’m tempted to indulge in some idle chatter among friends.
G rapevine bearing poisonous fruit
O f hearsay, tittle tattle, little truth.
S hame on you and shame on me
S tanding in this malicious melee.
I nflicting wounds with the words we speak
P utting the knife in only makes us weak.
