The Downside of Gossip Talk

No matter how awesome you think you are, you’ve been guilty of listening and perhaps participating in gossip. Gossip talk is everywhere. Whether you’re questioning a person’s choice of attire or wondering about their finances, you’re gossip hungry.

Gossip fills the internet. Many websites and television shows center their topics on celebrity gossip. People hunger for the latest news on their favorite celebrity or not so favorite celebrity. Social media allows gossip to flow freely about regular people sometimes making them into internet celebrities.

All it takes is one post to garner interest and a story goes viral. Some things should be exposed and some things shouldn’t. One should draw a line on what they say or share. However, the quest for gossip overcomes them. As some might say, the thirst is real.

It’s easy to express opinions about others. But, what happens when it hits home? Do you want to discuss your private life with the world? If you weren’t transparent about your life with others, I doubt you’d want your undesirable details leaked out on social media.

When you’re in the business of talking about gossip, you’ve to be strong enough to take the criticism that comes with it.

Can you live with yourself knowing others are gossiping about you while you’re gossiping about others? Is it too much to come clean with your audience and address the rumors? Or, should you act unbothered?

It boils down to the essence of the person. A responsible person strategically handles situations. Also, they’re careful not to be hypocritical. Hypocrites leave a bad taste in your mouth. They bash others for things they participate in. Being honest is the best policy.

Celebrity Gossip is a necessary evil that pays. However, care should be taken when discussing others’ situations. Allegedly comes into play. If you weren’t there, you don’t know for sure unless it was recorded. Even then, that’s up to interpretation. Sometimes, the evidence is falsified.

Despite the entertainment value of gossip, it involves real people with real lives. It’s okay to sip some tea without hurting others. Sometimes, a little gossip talk goes a long way in rounding out your day.
