Nice Girls Rule 60-Day Challenge: Day 3

For the next two months, every time I post a Blog/Twitter/Facebook message it will be about one simple way to increase your nice girl power. These will be simple ways to make your corner of the world a better place and to celebrate who you are, a woman who has committed herself to giving nice a good name. Here's today's challenge!

Nice Girls Challenge Day 3:

Get off the gossip train

Thought of the day: The truth about gossip is that in a woman's world its hard to know what the difference between regular conversation and gossip truly is- that's how often the two go hand-in-hand. Gossip is not only hurtful, but it is also the platform by which verbal bullying can begin. Talking about someone's life, struggles, or issues without them present is just bad manners.

The next time that someone begins talking behind the back of another person, the simple question to ask is: "Well have you asked her about it?", or "Interesting. The next time I see her, I will have to ask her what really happened." If you threaten to reveal the truth about gossip, you will be surprised at how quickly you will no longer be involved in hurtful conversations among your peers.
