Appreciate those who gossip about you

Appreciate those who gossip about you. It's not easy for someone to leave their own problems and carry yours on their head.

If we all said to people’s faces what we say behind one another’s backs, society would be impossible.

Gossip isn’t scandal and it’s not merely malicious. It’s chatter about the human race by lovers of the same.

“I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.” —Jon Katz

“Never leave a friend behind. Friends are all we have to get us through this life—and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in the next.” —Dean Koontz

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” —Anais Nin

So live that you wouldn’t be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.
