24 Jul Don’t gossip. Focus on positivity.
It is so easy to get caught up in all of the gossip that goes on within a school. The hard part is ignoring it and not contributing to the negative chatter. I have noticed that when other people are gossiping, if I stay quiet and do not comment, the gossip actually stops. I think that part of the “fun” of gossiping for some people is receiving reactions from others. If you don’t contribute, then the negative chatter stops, and people tend to change the subject. Gossiping really does not benefit anyone. So instead, start focusing on positivity. Talk about nice qualities that your peers possess and stop the vicious gossiping cycle.
Try this: For the next 30 days, do not participate in, comment on, or contribute to any gossip. Take note of the energy that surrounds you.
