I had written this post online for my followers and I assumed it would be ideal to share on MM too. I've read a few post on MM and noticed how gossip, rumors or making PRE-JUDGEMENTS and assumptions become easy for us to do. It's a typical reaction for humans, but have we ever tried correcting ourselves and learning to speak with a more positive outlook? Maybe there was a reason behind the actions? You might learn, giving people the benefit of the doubt is far more pleasing then being negative; after all, we are all human and desire the samethings in life, no? Just a thought... 

 

 

Gossiping and spreading rumors are my least favorite things to do. I'd rather be on the "unsociable" list, then be around gossip or people who thrive from damaging other peoples lives. Remember there is always two sides to a story! Don't surround yourself with negativity, as they may be gossiping about you too. - 
Start your 2014 with a positive outlook and love. Even if change of scenery is required, then start making that change today. Become inspiring and use your years of experience wisely. Instead of trying to correct others behavior, try changing your own. No one is perfect, but making an attempt to improve is better then believing no improvement is needed. - "Make A Change And Start Improving Your Life Today, Not Tomorrow."

Quoting Livnlov:

 

Roc,

 

 

I am aware of a few gay guys in the closet with wives and children, so these days that is hardly an accurate yardstick for measurement lol....

 

 

Why am I being sooo darn b*tchy?

 

 

Liv.


It's called "being on the down low" here.  So that's you being b*tchy???? ... hardly worth a spanking, my dear.

Quoting 3345roc:

It's possible, but unlikely.  I think he was married with children.  Memories fade but I do recall seeing Plato with Aristotle at New York City's Gay Pride Parade.  It was in the 80's.  I also remener seeing a motorcycle club... Dykes on Bikes.. they were "butch" and they were topless.... still trying to erase that mental image.

Quoting 3345roc:

You're straight??? Shoot, another one bites the dust.  Just going out for breakfast  one morning... and happened upon it.

 

There is, however, an upside to rumors and gossip. You learn things about yourself that you never knew.  With age comes wisdom.  The only critiques that are valid are those that are self inflicted or come form those you love and admire.  All others should be folded in four and stuck where the sun don't shine.

Quoting Jenkneee:

Hi Curious, I just read your post and wanted to explain. Did you see the photo in my post on here with the two young guys with weird foreheads?  They're called bagelheads. It's a popular trend somewhere, thankfully the solution they put in their foreheads doesn't last very long, maybe 24 hours? Here's another photo of the look. Crazy huh?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Totally bizarre.  I suppose it's one of those things that is hilariously funny for those doing it while having no point whatsoever beyong being hilariously funny.  As long as it's harmless, everything's cool, I guess.  LOL

I read this blog and said to myself "what the hell is a bagelhead?"  I looked it up on Wikipedia and I still don't know what the hell a bagelhead is. 

 

ROFLMAO just trying to make sense of this blog.  Maybe I'm just getting too damn old to follow all you young whippersnappers.  But I'll keep trying...  I'll keep trying.  LOL

In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about your friend?"

"Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test". "Triple filter?" "That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say. 

The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?" "No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and ..." "All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not.

Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?" "No, on the contrary ..." 

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?" "No, not really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"

This is why Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem. It also explains why he never found out his best friend was screwing his wife.

Wow SYS, you have no idea how relevant your article is for me at this moment in time.

In the small office I work in, this is exactly what I am trying to work through.

When bitchiness and negativity is all around you it is very difficult not to be influenced or to make a comment. I managed this for a full week last week and became an isolated little island  happily focused on my work, my time was much more productive and the interactions I had with people outside of my office were much more positive.

It felt like progress.

 

And your article feels like a reassuring reminder!

 

Very well written.

 

Ultimately I think all judgmental negativity comes from fear and insecurity.
