Venting is Gossip

 

 

What if someone said something bad about you to someone else, and they said: “Oh, it’s not gossip, I’m just venting”?

Well, see, here’s the problem: Venting is gossip. Just by saying something negative about somebody else to ANYBODY else, that’s gossip by definition!

If you have a problem with somebody, there’s only one person to talk to: THAT person. Directly. And form a request! And if they’re not responding to the request, then perhaps you go to the person that they report to, and make sure that they get some coaching from that person.

But venting is gossip. So, keep your heart and soul clean by making sure that you never participate in gossip.
