We’ve always had people who didn’t agree with us. Even Bullying isn’t new. Gossip has been around forever too. With the internet and people being able to hide behind icons and made up user names things have grown to huge proportions. Today it only takes a few minutes for a tale to go all around the globe.
What do YOU do with all these stories? Do you just jump on the bandwagon rolling by and take part? What if that gossip is about YOU or someone you care about? This is the problem with meddling in the business of others. Personally I am not the least concerned with the private affairs of anyone. I am not interested in who is dating, divorcing or cheating with whom. I have business of my own and enjoy my very exciting and interesting life.
So what about you? Are you a gossip? Do you just go along with whatever is being said and share it with anyone who will listen? I would be so excited to see a world where good stories made the rounds more quickly than gossip. Can you imagine that? How awesome that would be.
Now what about when you are the one being talked about? What do you do? Because I’ve been in the public eye for several years I’ve had a few tales told about me. Now and then someone goes to the radio station chat and feels it necessary to type their fears about me for others to see. I’ve even had a few folks share their dislike of me on social media over the years.
Do those stories have any thing to do with me? Not really! Many years ago one of my students carried a signature line on his email that stated a wonderful and empowering truth. “What others think of me is NONE of my business”! I love that and repeat it to myself on that rare occasion when someone sees me through their filter of fear. When people react to us the are for the most part not even knowing us, rather they are seeing themselves in us. That is the reason for all the gossip and anger. We see our own fear and beauty in others. We are reflections for one another, like a 3D movie. We see what we are most involved in energetically with in our own lives.
Free yourself by releasing gossip and fear. Look for, acknowledge and celebrate the beauty and power within yourself and be amazed at how you begin to notice this all around you.
