Chinese Whispers (Broken Telephone)

It’s really easy to believe in people, but it’s altogether too easy to lose faith in people.

Today your world could be built up, or torn down. So it all depends; how are you going to react to the things that people do or say?

Rumours and gossip have been known to create false hope and destroy real dreams. Personally I refuse to listen to them. If possible I try to change the topic of conversation. I’d rather go straight to the source, or not think about it at all. It’s a pity if everyone keeps passing rumours and gossip on.

I don’t accept anything I hear by ‘word of mouth’ as the truth. I always do my best to keep an open mind, not make quick judgements and remember that every rumour is like playing a round of ‘Chinese Whispers’. A game where every time you tell a friend a story, it changes, so by the end it sounds like something completely different. image taken from http://ssaxby.prblogs.org/files/2010/08/ChineseWhispers.png( This game is known in some other western countries as “Broken Telephone” )

If we are all just listening to the truth and keeping to what we know as truth, then how could anything get so distorted as that? I want to change at least my small portion of the world, so that we can all think a little clearer, and perhaps even think better of each other…

Do you really want to make life-changing decisions based on a game of Chinese whispers?
