Shona Ferguson has been around for some time and knows a thing or two about life. So, when he spews a bit of wisdom, best believe you take out your notepad and pen.
The amount of gossip that takes place on a daily basis is actually alarming. Being in an industry where gossip is as free as the air we breathe, Shona knows just how toxic it can be.
Shona took to social media to school us all on the effects of talking about other people. One small story travels far and becomes something that can be destructive.
In a lengthy post, Shona explained that “gossiping is toxic and harmful”. He explained his personal experiences and made it clear that gossip is something he does not care for, nor the people who do it.
“I personally do not invest in opinions generally. Good or bad, I take it as simply understanding from folks' perspective. However, I get red flags when someone comes to share gossip with me or anyone close to me.”
Shona also highlighted how social media has made it easier to gossip and for the gossipers to hide behind their screens while they ruin others lives.
“Social media has made the culture of spreading rumours and gossip dangerously normal. Retweeting or reposting hateful posts and liking mean-spirited content.”
He ended off the post by stating that:
“Successful, happy, healthy, wealthy, positive & confident people have no time to talk about others.”
Shona feels that gossipers are sad, lonely people who need to heal from something. Amen!
