Tuesday Tips (for living awesomely): Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, and Names Totally Hurt Too.

Technically, we all know gossip is bad; it doesn’t feel good (ultimately), it doesn’t do anyone any good, and it’s pretty much the opposite of kindness and compassion.

Although I do believe that the urge to gossip is a natural human tendency, and I’m no Mother Teresa and no one is perfect, I also believe that we can strive to be better; that we can focus more on enjoying and loving our own lives, then talking about other people’s (celebrity gossip included).

And if you get stuck, here is a simple tool you can use when you feel the urge to gossip. When you notice yourself wanting to talk about someone else, THINK before you speak.

Ask yourself:

T- Is it TRUE

H- Is it HELPFUL

I- Is it INSPIRING

N- Is it NECESSARY

K- Is it KIND

If the answer is no to any of these, don’t say what you’re about to say.

    This is great advice, Sally. I often talk and act too quickly- without thinking that even seemingly innocent words can be hurtful if expressed the wrong way. I am taking on this challenge for sure! :)

      Hey Miss Shelly…I’m so glad you like it! And I totally know what you mean. I found this technique after a night of hard core gossiping. I woke up feeling icky, so decided to find some great tools to help. Do let me know how it’s going!!

  2. As a FreeMason, we learned the triple filter of truth. It’s not that far off from this, and as a matter of fact, it is actually parts of this.
