Some people are so “messy”. They like to get in other people’s business and cause trouble in those people’s life when it is really none of their business at all. Messy people thrive on gossip and rumor spreading. They’re never happy unless they do! I try my best to avoid them , not so much in actually avoiding the person but tuning them out and refusing to play into there ploys to start a good juicy tidbit of gossip. We all know at least one “messy ” person . Maybe we know them at work or church or maybe even in our own families . And what would our lives be without them ( and that’s a story for another day) to add such edification to our lives? But we can control how we respond to these people in our own way and thereby control their messiness .
