People are quick to believe the bad things they hear about good people. Truth, some people can't handle good people
Rumors, gossip and back talk by a conceited, jealous, low self esteem cheating wife who WAS a friend...I distance myself from all the shit - go live your life and we'll VERY happily live ours. People can change, and I pray you turn your life around.
Rise above the gossip and back-stabbing, refuse to take part and understand you need to get away from the people who gossip and backstab. Joining in doubles the negativity. They inevitably turn on you, esp. Be good not evil.
