Everybody loves gossip. Who did what, when, where, why, how and most importantly with whom ; who said what, when, where, why, how and about whom; who wore what, when, where, why and by whom and who was spotted when, where, why, how and with whom  makes a palatable and a soul satisfying dish that we as humans love to relish. The best recipe is created in the kitchens of a kitty party, canteens, weddings, coffee lounges and on social media. The fairer sex is not the only one to be blamed. Men are equally enthusiastic about engaging in malicious slander and tearing people down.

A juicy piece of gossip makes the gossiper feel superior to the victim when the only thing they can do is destroy their image. Too bad!
Someone very rightfully said “What Susie says of Sally says more of Susie than of Sally.” Think about it. Why don’t we ever realise that what goes around comes around? Why don’t we ever realise that this is reason enough to watch our words? Well, the answer to these two questions lies in your inner light. Look into your conscience before you defame someone and remember it won’t take too long for the grapevine to find you.

Forever and ever,
