Matthew 5:11-12 KJV
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you… , and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
It is not fun to be the subject of gossip or slander; nobody likes to be talked about behind their back. However, it is an inevitable experience for every person, unless you are dead or utterly useless. You cannot control what others choose to see in you nor say about you. You cannot be in the good books of everyone at the same time. “We cannot control the evil tongues of others; but a good life enables us to disregard them” (Cato the Elder).
