I seriously hate people who talk shit about other people behind their back without giving that person a chance to defend themselves- it's been happening to me recently and a couple friends of mine on multiple social media platforms and it seriously needs to stop. What people say about someone to other people does matter. It can make people who don't even know the person not want to be their friend if someone tells them something bad enough. Past events are called past for a reason. They should not be brought up as a reason for someone who doesn't know the person being spoken about to not be their friend. They most certainly should not be brought up if the person that is being spoken about cannot see and be given a chance to defend themselves. It's immature and immoral to do such. I hate this happening to me. I'm damn sure anyone who watches me/I am watching would hate this happening to them so don't be a world class douchebag and do things like that. This is not toward anyone in specific, just situations like that in general. Think about the actions you take before you take them. Think about what you say before you say it. You never know, it could really hurt someone.
