This is probably going to be half-baked of sorts, but I’m typing on my phone and I hate small screens!
Before I start, I should apologise for being away for so long. Life does that to you sometimes – I’ve been on such an emotional rollercoaster recently, it’s become difficult to put my emotions in words.
So I’m sitting here getting my hair done at home (#LikeABoss#) and watching the show ‘Moments With Month’ with Mo Abudu. The issue? Loyalty amongst friends, in the face of gossip. I’m going to take gossip here to be saying something unflattering about someone else, in their absence.
It got me thinking – do I want my friends to inform me about gossip which is circulating about me? There are probably diverse schools of thought on this – some people don’t want to know anything, some people want to know everything, and some people want you the friend to pick and choose what to tell them.
Me? I wanna know everything that is being said. I have a robust fear of the unknown. Plus, I feel that we give a lot of modern-day or older bullies power over us, in the name of ‘God will pay’, ‘let me be the bigger person’, and all that. However, statistics have shown that once confronted, a bully is most likely to back down and leave you alone!
So I say, stop cowering in a corner and letting people spread lies about you. Stand up, clear your name and hold your head high! When we die, all we have left is our reputation. Don’t let someone kill yours before you even figure out what you want it to be!
Update: I wrote this about 2 weeks ago then couldn’t find the saved draft on my phone…how annoying! Have a lovely weekend, peeps!
