“Did you know she was held back a grade?” Gossiping may be fun, but it can be harmful. Something as simple as talking to a friend about someone else could end up around the whole school.
For instance, in the movie Means Girls, they made a “Burn Book”, a book filled with hurtful gossip about everyone in the school. One day someone got the book and made copies of all the pages and filled the school with them. The girls who made the book were then hated by everyone. this shows how fast something can spread.
Also gossiping can turn into bad rumors. For example, I heard someone I thought was my friend spreading a false rumor about me. I felt like I had no true friends, I just wanted to fall into a hole and die. Just because you think someone can’t hear it, doesn’t mean you should say it, especially when you don’t know if its true. It’s all fun in games until someone gets hurt. If you don’t want something being said about you, don’t say it about someone else, in other words treat others how you want to be treated. Therefore just don’t gossip, it can turn into a huge rumor, and/or hurt someone.
