Someone Is Spreading Rumors About Me. What Can I Do?
Rumors are the spice of life; but rumors can have serious consequences for us. They can affect various aspects of our lives, including our personal, social, and professional life. Before we learn how to handle rumors, let us understand a little more about them. A rumor is the opposite of fact. A fact is verified piece of information supported by data whereas a rumor is an unverified piece of information, which is unsubstantiated by any data. Since rumors are not backed by any data, they are normally quite exaggerated pieces of information and can be far from truth.

Gossip is wrong, no matter how you look at it. Spreading malicious rumors will not only hurt the subject of the gossip, it makes you look bad in a rude and immature kind of way. Most people gossip to get attention and to make themselves feel better, but in the long run, it typically backfires on the person doing the talking and those who are willing to stand there and listen. No one ever benefits from malicious discussion about other people. If you are a habitual gossip, others will eventually lose trust in you as a friend. Not only does it show bad manners it hurts friendships and damages professional relationships. Once you say something, it is impossible to take it back, so always think before speaking.
