You know they talk about her because she matters.
Is she strong enough to stay confident,
or will she feel shaken up and shatter?
Is he smart enough to know that it’s a sign he’s important,
and that their need to run him down and lie shows their weakness
and lack of self-confidence?
Will they feel insecure when the truth shines out bright?
Would it be alright for them
or do they feel there’s something to hide?
Lessons from the school playground that some of us still haven’t learned it seems. So much agonizing about who said what and to/about whom on the news these days, and so little discussion about things that really matter.
And yet, there are signs of light if one really searches for them.

As I’ve been told – what others say about you is their business and not yours! I learned to shrug it off and soon the naysayers were revealed as gossips and rumormongers. They lost credibility, not me!

Yes, me too.
Unfortunately much of the gossip seems to appeal to many and media takes advantages of this for rating and advertising revenue.
I suppose too, that a society where gossip is normal and nosiness serves a function, plays a part.
