The reason why people like to talking bad about other people or gossiping because that’s the only way to put themselves in the conversation and other’s people mind.
While normally they would not be in anybody’s mind.They realize that they are nobody, living nobody’s life and they want to be noticed.
So…. anything that ‘nobody’ can say to put themselves in the mind or on the mouth of somebody, that is what they are going to do and continue to do. Right?
