We are Connected

Gossip makes people feel a sense of togetherness, connection with others.

Has to be that act of sharing something – especially sharing something that you specifically were chosen to hear – a sense of trust bestowed upon you.

Of course you’re just one among many – but this “many” gives the bestower a sense of power and significance at being able to give (or not give) information that no one knows.

Gossip = necessary, simple and dangerous way of quickly making “deeper” connections – and just as quickly ending connections.

Why so complicated.
