Gossip is the devil's radio
Someone has very rightly said that "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people!!!!
People enjoy talking about others and it is definitely not others' virtues. Gossip can be harmless but it can very damaging sometimes. It can cause irreversible damage to ones reputation,hurt feelings, create misunderstandings etc. It is better to stay away from mindless gossip for the sake of immaterial or sadistic pleasure.However,we all indulge in this activity putting worst use of our ever fertile minds.We only realize its negativity when gossiping is about us.
"Fire and swords are slow engines of destruction compared to the tongue of gossip".Richard Steele.
"Loose tongues are worse than wicked hands." Jewish proverb
"Gossip is the opiate of the oppressed". Erica Jong
We all know that it is not good to gossip without ascertaining the truth but seldom we try to find out the truth. What i have learnt about life is that its better to wait and watch and let the truth come out on its own rather than engaging in mindless speculation and gossip. Truth will come out eventually,it is just a matter of time. It cannot be hidden. Therefore, wait for the truth to emerge from the shadows instead of following the shadows of doubt and lies. It will make oneself a better human being,learning to be patient,being a considerate person and trying not to hurt others without any rhyme and reason.
We all aspire to be a better human being...one step towards it is by stopping ourselves from gossiping and gossip mongrels......lets nip the devil's radio in its very first session!!!!
