#rumors. I think people sometimes believe anything they hear instead of asking the person who supposedly "started" it...or take something out of context and run with it because they didn't hear the whole conversation. Ask the source! Be honest. No sense in negativity being allowed in to your life.
Our words have such an effect on each other. Just saying one nice thing to someone can completely alter their views on the day and world, and could even save a life. Try saying something nice anytime it comes into your mind. Make kindness a habitual lifestyle, not a chore!
