"Gossiping is sure a hurtful thing"

I am so glad work is over today! I was having a fairly descent day and us Physical Therapy Aides where having a meeting about Physical Therapy month for October and the gossiping started up and I was just sitting there in a wheel chair not saying a word just looking at these cackling hens gossip about a co~worker, and someone made the comment that they thought this fellow co~worker got written up for something, now let me remind you I'm not saying a dang word and out of this woman's mouth, who started the filth came these word's, "For God sake Annette, don't say anything to him" I sat there just stunned for a few seconds and I leaned forward in the wheel chair and said,"Don't remind me, remind your self! you were told in confidence and here you are repeating it your self, and if your so damn afraid I'm going to say something, then don't say any thing to me at all, and I mean at all!!!" Just when I thought this person wasn't so bad after all......BAMB!! she did this. Then I got to thinking about on the way home....The devil saw I was not participating in the gossip and he had her get to me, and I thought "My gosh, this is like being in High School, except allot of High School kid's are more mature then these so called grown women who are mother's, wife's and grandmother's. But I pleased my self, and God for not participating in that garbage, and out of spite I should tell him, but I wont cause that's exactly what Satin wants me to do, and I'm not one of his children, I'm a child of God!!

Annette, I have had things like this happen at my church. They are really bad gossipers.
It hurts when people are like that. To me that is a form of arrogance, because they think they are better than every body.
I will not participate either. It is wrong, and it is so damaging.
Good for you for standing up! I am so proud of you. Love You, Nita

You did the right thing Annette. Gossip is the devils work.

THanks for stopping by my blog and I did tell my husband about the birtday dinner your son wanted with salmon, pancakes and mac and cheese. He laughed!

God BLess You

I'm proud of you. Gossip is so hurtful. It's something we all need to be on guard about.

I refuse to participate in gossip. When people start gossiping I usually start wondering about the self concept of the person who is doing the gossiping...they reveal a lot about themselves...they usually aren't people with great quantities of self confidence. By casting others to the outside of a social ring they think they are securing their spot within that social ring. Rather sad really. I'm proud of you for being true to your self and pointing out where the real indiscretions were...this is always difficult to do, especially in a work environment when we just want to get through the day without any drama...good for you!


much love ~

i think others should have to ask your permission before they start gossiping!.....that way, in the very beginning, we could just say no thanks, and not have our space invaded by others polluting it with words we don't want to be a part of. good for you annette...i admire your courage to stand up for your values.
reminds me of that saying
"There is so much good in the worst of us,
And so much bad in the best of us,
That it hardly becomes any of us
To talk about the rest of us.

have a wonderful day being you!

Good for you Annette recognizing how sneaky the devil is. If he can't get you one way, he is determined to get you another. You are a strong woman and firmly planted in your faith. Hang on, the ride is going to be rough, but the end reward is more than any of us could ever dream of.
