Enough is enough

By: Melanie Loesel [Staff Writer]

Everyone talks about people behind their back, but when does it get to be too much? Everyone has felt what it feels like to find out someone they thought was their friend really wasn’t. Sometimes it’s normal to talk about people, but after a certain extent it’s just not cool.

People think they know other people, but really there is so much a person can hide. While someone is sitting there talking about another person, that other person could be going through things that are  unimaginable, and while that person is going through this, the other person talking about them is only making it worse. Honestly nobody ever truly knows another person.

Once someone tells another person a “secret” it’s not a secret anymore, more than likely that little secret will spread like a wild fire. It is the same with talking behind some ones back. People love drama and stirring things up. With that eventually what is said behind another’s back will get to the person being talked about.

Some people will say that it doesn’t matter if they talk about others, because if the situation was in reverse that person wouldn’t care. It does matter, nobody likes anyone talking about them, even if it’s something little, it still hurts. Everyone wants to be liked, and it sucks to be the one who isn’t.

People are going to talk about other people behind their backs no matter what, but after awhile it’s cruel. No matter what nobody will ever know somebody else, end of story. A person can hide so much from another. Most likely once someone talks about someone to another person it will come back to bite that person. The next time you’re about to talk about someone think about how it would feel if you were the one being talked about.

    So true.. people really need to mind their own business. The world could be a much happier place if everyone just ignored gossip and stayed away from the drama. Unfortunately it’s in our nature to talk about others to make ourselves feel better, but just think, if no one talked about anyone, no one would ever be hurt by crude rumors and mean comments. If you’ve ever been gossiped about, then you know how badly it hurts. So next time imagine yourself being the one everyone is talking about and STOP spreading the rumors and tell those who are to mind their own business. Everyone has problems, so don’t get involved in other peoples’ problems when you have your own stuff to worry about.
