Rumors: Oh boy, they spread fast! The true way to sum up rumors in a few quick words is: they have wings!
Ok: so you ask why are we talking about this?! Hellooo: I am in middle school: land of rumors.
Why do people start rumors?
Well, does it matter? What matters is if you know how to handle the rumor. You can handle it in a calm way and handle it in an angry way. (I bet we all know how many buildings can be knocked down if it is handled in the angry way) When I am calm I can think straight. I can think to myself, that even if there was a rumor going around about me, as long as I know it is not true I am fine. This also goes back to the point of not caring what anybody else thinks, because the only person I have to live with forever, is me. When I am angry it does nobody any good. All I can think of is how much I want to kick someone’s but! (Just Kidding) My point is I cannot think in a way that will be helpful. Can you? All I do by handling it in the angry way is make more frenemies: (friends + enemies). I don’t know about you but I would rather have more friends than frenemies. That would make me “Happppyyy if you feel like a room without a roof, because I’m happy” Oh sorry cut out from one of my fav songs. COULD’NT STOP MYSELF! ☺
What is the most important thing to remember when rumors are spread?
What I remember is simply YOLO! For those of you that have not read my previous blog means: You Only Live Once! Although rumors may hurt at the time (which they certainly do to me), it is always better to forgive and forget. This goes with being calm and having perspective. When I have perspective I remember how many mistakes I have made in my lifetime and how much I regret it. Has this happened to you? The main point I think about is why spend time dwelling over such a small thing when you could be having fun and just enjoy life while we have it. This means eating pizza and ice-cream behind our parents back. LOL! Anyway, in 10 years, when I am 22, eating pizza and ice-cream, I will not be thinking about a small rumor spread about me in middle school. Mainly because I am thinking about the heavenly pizza that is in my mouth. On a serious note, POND: Perspective Opens New Doors and YOLO: You Only Live Once.
All of my blogs have a thread. This is threaded to perspective and yolo in a way. Something that I am trying to do is: to let things go and not stress over small little details. This is the biggest possible change, in my opinion, you can make in your life to make you happier and actually healthier. My biggest dream is to make the biggest difference in this world that I can possibly make. If everyone would remember this we could all make a big change.
‘Justice is good, forgiveness is better’
