No matter how busy we are we always find time to gossip two minds think alike . In other words two thoughts are stronger than one. If someone says something hurtful to you the more notice you take of it the stronger the hurt will get. Better tio ingnore and send healing thoughts to the person who verbalised it the first place.
A lot of stress can be created by somebodys opinion if allowed. This is often unjustified vindictive talk. Yet even so we allow their thoughts to penetrate our energy field and continue its blackening effect on our mind. We allow emotions to risepetrate the surface where everthing becomes irrational. Once the gossip is repeated its strength is doubled repeated again it is multiplied until all gets out of hand and has a devastating effect on that victim. refuse to become a victim by nipping it in the bud. My father always told me to keep my lips sealed until you have thought carefully about what you are about to say! Oh dear. l wish l was perfect!
