Bonjour, mon ami! How are you today?
Yo, yo, yo. I'm not about hating and I'm not about gossiping (#FlappinLips).
You are what you consume and that includes information; the stories you tell yourself and to others. The more and more you tell these stories, the more you believe them. But sometimes you get the story wrong.
Gossip is not truth. Gossip is an interpretation of someone's perception of events from their lens and their lens only. So why do people believe the stories told to them that are essentially gossip? Because we so desperately want to believe what the other person is saying.
Why would this person lie to you intentionally unprovoked? Because people are sick, like in the head, like legit sick. Not in a bad way, but in a, "I'm insecure, but I don't know how to verbalize that without feeling ashamed" way (#INeedTherapy, #ItsOkayNotToBeOkay). It's very, very common because we're all insecure at various points in our life or perhaps various times in one day (#WhoFuckingCares, #ThePointIs).
Therefore, my little (#JoySprites), when you realize someone is lying to you and you perceive that they cannot handle you calling them out for lying to themselves or to others, simply listen. Let the person get tangled in their own little web of lies because the lies will catch up to them in time (#LittleFiresEverywhere).
That energy is not meant for you; it is meant for them. If you sit and listen and do not react, just listen, you will act as a mirror to the person in need. Once they realize they cannot pull a fast one on you, they will begin to see the negativity they are spewing out (#ItMayTakeManyTrials). That energy is reverse energy. They think they are putting it out into the world, but the world will put it back on them, eventually and evenly (#KharmaIsABitch).
