If someone is upset that you don’t want to gossip with them, tell them “You’ll appreciate it when I don’t talk about you with other people.”

  1. I just act so indifferently as if I’m a therapist like never actually agreeing or contributing the conversation in any way other than saying general statements to validate that I am
    listening without actually agreeing such as, “right, I understand” or “that’s frustrating” “hmm that’s strange they did that” “maybe they didn’t realize that you were bothered by that” “that’s so weird” “I’m sorry you were in that situation” etc.

    And yes that is the wholehearted truth that people who talk shit about others talk shit about you too, especially if they talk shit about a lot of different people and people they identity as their “friends”. Unfortunately some people literally rely on passive aggression as a form of bonding with others because they are not super personable or don’t have the social skills, confidence, charisma etc. to relate to people in a legitimate way.

    I will say that as a reformed insecure shit talker it feels SO MUCH BETTER now that the shoe is on the other foot and i have learned how to not partake in the gossip fest. In reality there is nothing cool or funny about talking shit or pointing out someone else’s flaws. I just find it kind of pathetic and sad and immediately associate someone who does that as insecure because someone who is truly okay with themselves would have no reason to shit on other people!

  2. Or just say it’s not nice and you don’t like drama. They won’t fixate on their hypocrisy from you saying that, you’ll just be painting yourself as a backstabber.
