Great minds discuss ideas.
Average minds discuss events.
Small minds discuss people.
- Elenor Roosevelt
Gossip is COWARDLY.
· That is putting down others.
· That is demoralizing.
· It is attacking another person's character.
When you avoid direct confrontation
you tend to complain to safe people.
That is GOSSIP.
Gossip BOOMERANGS in your face eventually.
Are you angry at someone?
· Do not dump on others.
· Cool off. It may take hours or days.
· Wait at least three days, then confront that person directly.
Say “I FELT offended when you _____.”
Say “That was backbiting, stop it.”
