Fuel The Fire

Sunday, February 24, 2013

It's one thing to have a mere suspicion regarding the spreading of the flames of gossip, and who you believed struck the match, but it's something else to have an actual hearer of the ill wisher's spoken words confirm the very suspicions you hoped weren't true.

To intentionally breathe whispers of gossip into itching ears, poison dripping from your tongue, with the sole purpose of isolating those you spoke ill of from others in their lives, is reprehensible. It loudly proclaims your character to those that have experienced people like you before, and to those with their eyes and hearts open.  

You chose your words of malice carefully, and seductively  uttered them to those you knew would ignite your smoldering accusations into a full fledged firestorm that, as you had hoped, would cause the destruction of relationships and leave the lives of the ones you spoke ill of in ashes.

You did, however, make a mistake. You didn't count on some of the hearers of your actual words of venom to have more discernment than you had initially believed.  They were fully aware of your words, spoken with seemingly innocent eyes and a "concerned" appearance, and they realized exactly what your intent was. They saw through your attempts to destroy, and now look upon you with pity. They see you as someone so insecure that you had to maliciously try to tear down fellow humans, to make yourself feel superior. I'm sure you justified your actions, for your own sake, and made others think you simply had concern on your heart. After all, you had to be believed as you sat on your pedestal of piety.

Yes, you succeeded with the ones that drooled as they anxiously awaited for ribbons of gossip to waft through the air. You succeeded with the ones that had little discernment, and only had the desire to take any words, ill-will spoken by others, embellish them, inflame them, and proceed to broadcast them to others that were happily waiting to follow suit.

What you failed to acknowledge is that you, undoubtedly, have made many mistakes in your lifetime. We all have, and will continue to do so. Yet you judge as if you haven't once dipped your toes into the pool of sin, as each, and everyone of us has done at one time or another, some of more than others and some less.

You put on the facade that you've never held your head in disgrace, or that you've never disappointed another person. Instead of reflecting on your own past and present misjudgements, you chose to focus on those of others and did your best to appear as the perfect human, one that has done no wrong, one that has no closet of skeletons, and one that will make no future mistakes, all while willfully attempting to malign others. 

One more thing you're forgetting is that Karma will bite you in the back, but that's something I think you're familiar with.

That's the problem about gossipers in my opinion Diva, the ones who gossip do it without giving it any thought or having any idea about the harm that they could be doing with what they say. Sorry to hear that they have the cheek to confirm it in person too, simply disgusting.

It's interesting, to say the least.

Well written. You paint the picture in the brain quite clearly.
You should try writing a short story.

Yeah, you're right. There are few things in life worse than a hater. Actually, there are a few. Being one is worse, because nobody will defend you. Nobody likes a hater.
