A little gossip may be good for your soul. A new study suggests that people who gossip feel more supported. Researchers worked with 160 people and asked about their tendency to gossip, their support systems and their satisfaction with life. Before you start wagging your tongue, there’s a catch…the gossip has to be good! Overall gossip was perceived as a bad thing, however, if it’s positive gossip that helps praise others, it really can boost the gossiper’s self esteem.
