You know who they are. They are the people who never talk to you then you win a lottery and suddenly they are your best friends.
They are the people who talk about you behind your back and then pretend they care about your life when they hear something they think is “worth spreading.”
They are even the women and men at church who look down on you even though they don’t know you but somehow they still feel compelled to speak about you as if they do.
You take bubble gum to school and you are suddenly the center of attention and people say, “Hey, I know him! We’re best friends!” …when they wouldn’t speak to you any other days of your life.
The next time someone says, “Is it true about such n such?”
A great response is, “Why do you ask?”
You do not owe somebody information about your life. It is okay to NOT tell somebody stuff about you when you are uncomfortable.
If people are in it for gossip, it’s hard to hide. When they are genuinely caring about you they have a genuine answer.
