Gossip dies when it hits a wise man’s ears – Unknown
Hey Everyone Copper D.W. here!
Ok, so today’s post is on rumors, and how my stupidity of allowing them to take hold has become a ticket to unnecessary drama and total anxiety.
So I assume you have at least once been involved in a situation where a rumor is said either by you or another and someone else hears it, or have been somehow affected by a rumor in some kind of way.
I am human. I make mistakes, and sadly my inability to choose the correct people to talk to has made my life more complicated than needed be. I made a mistake in trusting someone with information only to have this person, on a personal angry rant tell the others parts of what I had said in an incomplete and out of context explanation. This letter is for the victim of my stupidity and, I am sure that most of you can relate.
Dear Victim of my Stupidity,
I apologize deeply of what you have heard and the way that the information has come to you. I have never had any sense of regret this year, for I take my decisions I make with pride, but I must say that I deeply regret how things came to be. You are my best friend and I know we have recently struggled, but I assure you that what I said was not out of spite or anger.
I am an idiot to talk to someone about issues that I have not yet understood how they function, and it is in my naive nature to understand that not everyone has the same morals as I do. I am deeply sorry about what you heard and how you came about to hear it, I take that as a fault of my own, and regret it.
Like I would not share any of your personal information, I will not share her’s even though she seemed to have little hardships when it came to revealing my own. I am a proud woman and stick to my morals and integrity in all diversity and I am sticking to my word and that is it. I am telling you this for I know there is probably gaps that are missing in your understanding of what is going on, but personally, I must respect the boundaries given to me even though the strict boundaries by my colleague has gone unheard.
I wish to let you know that I am terribly sorry and that the information that was given to you was either false of with a negative connotation that I wished not to bring up in that sort of manner. I indeed was going to try to talk to you the very next day to clear up some personal discrepancies and I am terribly sorry that the news came to you from another’s mouth, or more so via electronics vs my own.
I am sorry and want you to know that I have nothing against you, and what you heard was out of context or false in ways that I hope to later today clear up. I apologize for naiveness and what I assume was a rude awakening on my part.
I am sure to learn from my mistakes, yet I hope that our friendship can make it through intact during this mistake I brought upon myself. I am terribly sorry how things came to be and though I can not undo the past, I can only hope to fix the future. For what is said is said, what is done can’t be helped but it is what you do afterwards that determines the outcome.
