I read that tagline on a T-shirt this morning. The picture accompanied that tagline was Oddie from Garfield comic. If you are familiar with Oddie, you know that he is a sincere friend to Garfield even though that (not-so) fat cat always tease Oddie.
I was a kind of people who would think and analyze of what others said about me. Until one day, I made a deal to myself that such strategy won’t work for me any longer. I chose to be ignorant. And wishing that it was a bliss.
Turns out, it is. I trained myself to be ‘stupid’ and being less worry when it comes to gossips and ‘what I heard’ drama. It is better to spend time reading books or watching DVD, then listen to such classical stories made by others.
Gossip is always contagious and luring. The spices always up from one person to another. And as we know, the end story changes every time. It is not a lie for them, it is just a talk over coffee.
What if myself is the topic of those gossips? Oh, I have been there many times. One time I was so angry to the source of the made-up story, I couldn’t help myself but dream of me getting angry and throwing his stuff. I woke up, feeling funny – in between angry, ashamed and relieved. From then on, I knew that gossip was no longer a friend to me. I’m done. I chose to be stupid and enjoying my life.
Have a good day!
Life is good when you fill it with goodness.
