I tell you.

You tell her.

She tells him.

He tells me.

Rumors spread. It’s inevitable that they do. There a plethora of stories from a plethora of people with a plethora of experiences. The spread of stories is bound to happen.

However, only the Storyteller can say what facts move on.

Gossip is an interesting subject. It can ruin lives but also enhance them. Life without drama can be a boring life in reality. Peace and amusement do not always correlate. An interesting TedTalk which I had seen (click here to see it) portrays gossip as an interesting study of anthropology. It reflects the views of society at a time period.

The fact that gossip is a reflection of our society changed what I thought about it. It is, in fact, a form of communication. As knowledge-seeking creatures, human beings are compulsive to spread and hear gossip.

Why are we so aversive to a method of spreading information? Censorship is prevalent in society continuously. Whether or not the government does it, society enjoys to censor itself in its very foundations. We are aversive to the weird and uncomfortable. We avoid controversial conversations so our days can stay conventional and peaceful. Even untruthful gossip evokes emotions. A reaction gives all of the Storyteller’s spoken words value.

Even inaccurate gossip evokes emotions. And it is a reaction that gives all of the Storyteller’s spoken words value.

It is necessary that we speak what’s on our minds. Because the spoken word has a power to it. The power of perspective. And without your unique view influenced by your unique life being shared with us, our ears would lack the unique knowledge you have to offer. Become a new protagonist – a Storyteller.

I tell you.

You tell her.

She tells him.

He tells me.

And the story is shared.
