I Have So Much To Say

Me?  Having a lot to say?  Yes, I know, you’re all completely shocked.  Especially those of you know me-know me.  However, that’s not always a negative, hence, this blog.

I am saying “I literally have so much to say” because, over the past few weeks, so much has gone on in my life that I feel I want to talk about but I am going to stick to one, two, or sixteen thoughts tonight ranging from my home improvements, to my short period of zero motivation, to my one cat, Wendy Williams’, asthma.  Yes, my cat has asthma.  Her name is also Wendy Williams.  How you doin?  But also, pass the Adderall.

The above caption couldn’t be any more true of me.

What I think has really struck me mostly recently is the topic of gossip.

gossip

noun gos·sip \ ˈgä-səp \
Gossip can be defined as “a person who repeats the personal or sensational facts about others.”  But hold on, is gossip always a fact?  The answer is simply, “no.”  Gossip is also defined as “the RUMOR or report of intimate nature.”  More times than not, I think it’s the latter.  I have my own definition which I will present at the end of this blog post.
I think it’s in human nature to want to be in the know.  I mean, we have entire television shows, Instagram accounts and websites dedicated to Hollywood gossip.  While we all may tend to innocently catch up on our lives, friends lives, family, etc. (I am not going to pretend to be high and mighty here, I’ve been there in the past.. In the past) with people, we sort of trust people to keep in there.

There is a pretty distinct line, between a friendly game of catch up or “good gossip” (think, the Smith’s just bought a new house and they’re SO excited!), and repeated hearsay about people you may or may not know very well.  And if you don’t know them very well, well, that is even more questionable to me.  So, here’s the deal on gossiping and why maybe it’s time to take a quick twenty and reevaluate what you’re talking about, who you’re talking about and even WHY you’re talking about it.  In my 34 years, and maybe it took me 32 to learn this + the “hide status updates from” feature on Facebook , here is what I’ve learned:
  • Gossiping lowers your vibration level. 

Vibrations are frequencies or energies that we transmit into the Universe, right?  There are the basic things that we know lower vibrational level like overuse of social media, drugs and alcohol, toxic thoughts, processed foods and gossip.  Yes, gossiping about others lowers your vibrational levels.  When you’re putting this negative out into the universe, that is what is going to come back instead of joy, abundance, love and all that we seek.

“The universe is not punishing you or blessing you. The universe is responding to the vibrational attitude that you are emitting.” ~ Abraham Hicks

  • Gossiping about people hurts them whether you know it or not.

While you’re catching up with friends, over Tito’s and tonic, and you seem to think you’re harmlessly repeating that “Susan’s house is going into foreclosure because her husband is so lazy and hasn’t looked for work in a year and her kid is failing every class in school” (that was a completely fictitious example, by the way) you’re directly hurting Susan and her family!  By repeating someone’s major life issues, that may or may not even be happening you’re damaging people’s social standings and livelihoods.  And, for the record, unless you’re married to Jesus Christ, your children are perfect cherubs and your income makes Mark Zuckerberg look poor, marriages, children and finances are ALWAYS off limits.  Most of the time, by the time information is repeated, it is more convoluted than our government.  By the way, I hope you all voted today.

  • If they talk with you, they’ll talk about you.

I don’t think I even need to touch on this one, but, since y’all know me, I will.  Don’t be the bringer of hearsay, or rumors, which don’t give other people the chance to do the same.  Whenever you hear something about yourself, true or not, think about the people in your direct circle of friends.  If someone is trying to talk about others to you, there’s ways to divert or stop someone’s negative talk, right into an offensive spin move break away.

Here’s the deal, gossip brings people together or it tears them apart.  Surround yourself with likeminded people, people who share your same values and level of consciousness.  If you want good things to happen to you, it’s time to retire the gold medal in the Word Vomit Olympics and do the good, be the good and only repeat the good (gossip).
