Is gossiping toxic behavior?

Gossip, rumors and speaking ill of others are a one-sided way of managing or creating conflict and are incredibly toxic to culture and relationships. Gossip is poisonous to any environment, but it is especially deadly to the work environment. Gossip creates disruption and is specifically designed for the death of others. Gossip comes from the person with the biggest ego, but the most fragile, and who feels the greatest threat to their job security, self-esteem, popularity or status.

Workplace gossip succeeds in undermining important people they admire or fear. Annoying gossip knows that reputation is everything in business and that a tarnished reputation is almost impossible to recover. They devise strategies to ruin those they consider better than them or who don't stand in their way. Just like in fairy tales, gossip talks about stories of humans who have lived their lives in their own way.

I am writing this post with the secondary intention of holding myself accountable and drawing my attention to the defect of gossip. It's human nature to talk about others, analyze and be curious, so it can be difficult to discern destructive gossip. Workplace gossip also contributes to organizational dysfunction that causes stress, disconnection, disconnection, and school dropout. The Pickle Challenge for Charity is an organizational initiative to make people aware of the personal cost of toxic emotional negativity in their workplace.

Gossip never works alone because they are not powerful on their own, but rather they need a team of lieutenants to help them create their storm. The first time I was struck by the toxicity of gossip was about four years ago, when I first read the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Gossip is never a sign that you are doing something wrong or that something is missing inside you. Gossip thrives on the emotions and fears of others, just as leaching thrives on sucking blood from its source.

The most important thing to help me avoid the gossip trap is to surround myself with people who are also trying to overcome themselves and take responsibility. It may seem that gossip cares about you, that they are interested in what you have to say and that they are a person you can trust. According to a popular saying, gossip has been loved by many people, but gossip is not loved at all. For this reason, a person who gossips pathologically will smile at your face while planning to deceive you in order to eventually exploit your trust.

However, every time I think about writing it, I stop for fear of being judged and gossiped about it.
