Gals, Let's Stop The Gossip And Lift Each Other Up

Stop talking bad about Becky, please.

Gals, Let's Stop The Gossip And Lift Each Other Up

Look, ladies, I get it, it drove you through the roof when Becky ate her crackers too loudly.

However, we have all gone too far at some point and talked negatively about the girls we surround ourselves with.

At times, we do this without knowing the other person. Before you say "you would never," think about any social media post that has ever annoyed you...Or think about that girl that said a rude thing to you in 3rd grade that you still loathe. Think about the friendships in middle school that ended tragically.

Gossip is often at the root of it all and oooooh, I hate it.

I am guilty of it, but I hate it.

Gossip is terrible, VERY terrible.

It ruins friendships, drowns self-esteem, and shakes our views of the girls around us.

So, why do we still do it?

We are broken people living in a broken world.

We can't stop the brokenness in the world, but we can do our best to lead by example. We can practice self-control and hold our tongues when those nasty words are about to leave our mouths.

It's alright to get annoyed with Becky sometimes, but don't go shouting to Sarah that you "can't stand her."

If we are being real, I don't know Becky or Sarah, these are names thrown in for the sake of this article, just a disclaimer.

Alright back to the point… could you imagine what would start happening if we loved our fellow female well?

Could you imagine the amount of stress that would dissipate if we stopped hating on the gals we spend our lives with?

What a beautiful, beautiful time this would be. I know sister, I am guilty of this too. Can we join together and drop the hate on the girls around us?

I know, this feels like a moment from the oh so glorious movie Mean Girls, but we need it.

We need to stop shouting lies about the Kady Heron in our lives. We need to love people even when they treat us like Regina George treated Gretchen Wieners.

What does this look like you might ask?

Well, it looks like being kind to Becky even when her chip eating is distracting. It means that if you have an issue with someone, you confront them, no matter how awkward this is. You can show people respect and not skew others vision of them by keeping the situation between you and them.

We all have enough going on in our crazy little bubbles, we don't need to pull each other down in the process of it all.

OOOOH, grace is difficult to show people. But we can, I really think we can. Let's spread the good and not the bad. Let's drop the gossip and love the ladies in our lives.

Eat your chips as loud as you want Becky, I will survive.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
