Yes.this is so true.my momma always said if a dog took a bone.he would carry a bone.same thing.I say if you are confiding to a close person in your life.that is not gossip.gossip to me is mean spirited.and I do not gossip.
Gossip is spread by wicked people; they stir up trouble and try to break up friendships. They are people who are miserable, angry and will go out of their way to stir up conflict. The BEST thing that you can do when they attack you...walk away. This battle isn't even with you, it is with themselves. "A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends." Proverbs 16:28
