Hello ,

So we all do it yes talk about one another ! But whenever I am with my mom and a group of friends they start gossiping about others,but they don't make up lies. They just talk about "oh that person should of done this" or "If I was him/her I would of taken that step "or" she is wrong it's her own fault ". I sit there and I don't know why but it makes me mad/angry. I feel like we have no right to judge if someone did something let them deal with it . I try to ignore the conversation but it just makes me angry I feel like we don't know what's going to happen with us and we should worry about our problems instead of talking about others. Then when I interrupt to stop them get scolded. i know gossiping wont ever end but if ppl do gossip what can one do to try to avoid the situation ? I don't know what is wrong or right is it me with my anger ? Is gossiping ever okay ? I am confused please help :) !

I can understand what you're feeling! Gossiping is not right... (this is a shabad in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)

It is a habit of the mind to talk bad about others in order to feel good about ourselves.

It's best if you walk out of that situation and if that's not possible then you can do Naam simran inside your heart.

Waheguru Bless us all...
