    Gossip has gotten problematic, how can I fix it?

    Lets make this quick.
    I have a crush who I like because she’s been nice to me since I met her. She’s a sweet girl and I really like her. We were progressing towards friendship before this happened:
    One of my ‘friends’ decided to be ‘funny’ and yelled out that I liked this person in the middle of class. Ironically, he doesn’t know I like this person: he made a lucky guess. Of course, since everyone heard, the rumour spread around the school and now all of her friends are basically keeping her away from me.
    At this point, I don’t have a hope of salvaging what we had: I just want to stop this rumour before it gets any worse, because even if I didn’t like the girl the rumour is referring to it would still be a massive problem. I hate gossip.
    What do I do?

    “…now all of her friends are basically keeping her away from me.”

    First of all if SHE wanted to be with you she would.
    Secondly if you truly like her you shouldn’t be ashamed of it.
    One day when you get older you will see just how immature it was to pretend like you don’t like someone.
    Peer pressure and worrying about what others think of you fades by the wayside when one gets older.
    This whole immature school thing is a tiny phase of your life.
    When you’re in your 20s, 30s, and beyond you’ll see how stupid it was to be so invested in what others thought

    Man up and tell her you do like her and invite her to “hang out” with you, go to a school activity, or have lunch together.
    Don’t be afraid of rejection. It saves everyone time and sometimes money.
    In a world with over 7 Billion people rejection just means: NEXT!

    “If you live for people’s acceptance, you will die from their rejection.” – Lecrae

    Once you stop caring what other people think you’re FREE!

    Best wishes!
