Daily Gossip

The last thing I heard my friends talking about was a scandal that happened a couple of years ago involving someone in our peer group. While they were innocently chatting to their friend about an intriguing topic on their mind, they were also unwittingly gossiping. And this kind of gossip is extremely harmful, no matter what our intentions are. People who have never even met this person will have made their first impression of them based off some gossip they heard about them from several years ago, which is an unfair representation of who they are now.
The thing is, everyone makes mistakes and that's just a part of being human. But when we dwell on the mistakes or misfortunes of others by gossiping it disenables them from fully being able to move on and recover, and it's straight up just not a nice thing to do. While it's true we can't always control what we hear, we can certainly control what we share. So please next time you catch yourself about to dish the dirt on someone else, try sharing something you admire about them or someone else instead. If you say nice things about others, they're more likely to say nice things about you.
Have a great year everyone and remember a better MAGS starts with a better you.
