Gossip is cynicism in its most virulent form. It is easily spread from one person to another; it is contagious and destructive.

A reiteration of the definition of cynicism is relevant.

Cynicism has been defined as “An attitude of scornful or jaded negativity, especially a general distrust of the integrity or professed motives of others.” (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/cynicism). The synonyms for Cynicism are revealing: pessimism, sarcasm, suspicion, disparagement, skepticism, distrust, doubt, scorn. It is poison to the soul. A cancer to the spirit.

May our words be kind.
