Otherwise, it's just one big drama fest.
To everyone: don't talk shit about people unless you want them to find out because one way or another, people always find out.I have been the talker and I have been the one who has had shit talked about them. All I can say is ZIP YOUR LIPS.
Stop being 12 and be adults. Be a friend. Keep confidences. Learn to respect differences ( i,too, struggle with this one). Be strong. Face yourself and your truths.
DO NOT hang around people whom you do not respect.
