Don't ever let anything anyone says negatively about you get you down, dont listen to gossip (they are filled with lies or half truths), n honestly never say anything about someone that diminishes their true character, this will help that type of cycle. Gossip is an immature trait too many adults partake in. In my older age, i understand i cant change anyone, i can only be responsible for what i say, and if i ever hear something i question, i go strsight to the source, im direct n honest in that way. Wasnt always like that, but it's now something i can be proud of and have no regretful conversations. 😊 .
