Gossiping about other people is enjoyed, practiced, and wrong! Sharing the downfalls of others is despicable. Concentrate on your own problems, and keep your own doorstep clean and clear of debris. Offer help, support, and a listening ear but keep what is told to you in confidence and share nothing with gossip mongers.
Be a true friend.
