When talking to people, be wise and choose what you say particularly if it’s with regards to someone else.
Most times, when people talk about what you said, they forget to say what they also said that made you say the things you said. They just give incomplete reports. So if you are talking about someone with another person, be wise about it.
If you gossip, you should stop. It’s not necessary and it doesn’t even help anyone. If someone is always talking to you about someone, you can wisely refuse them or just plainly say ‘I rather not talk about this person’. I know it can really be difficult and not as plain as I have put it. In that case, try to say nothing or choose your words wisely but I think it’s better to simply avoid these situations.
