Gossip is good - level 2
You do not need to worry about gossiping anymore because gossiping helps make people human. When we gossip, we pass on important information about who we should trust within the large groups that we live in now.
Also, we live longer because when we gossip, we bond with our family and friends. We build our social network when we bond and this helps us live longer than anything else!
Gossip only became negative in modern times. Researchers asked people what they thought about gossip. People said that they didn’t trust people who gossiped too much or gossiped too little.
Difficult words: gossiping (talking about someone who is not with you), bond (to feel connected to other people), social network (the people that you know and who they know).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
