SOMETIMES I wonder where I am/Who I am/Do I fit in.”
Let’s just sing. Yes, that first line is from a 1980 song. But maybe Awra Briguela can relate to this despite the fact that she was born in 2004, 24 years after that song, “Out Here On My Own” by Irene Cara was released.
A few weeks ago, Briguela was involved in an incident that was covered by the bar’s CCTVs. By the time you read this, I have guessed the truth and nothing but the truth has been revealed. Since I am writing this several days before the deadline for the current edition, the only sight I have seen is the CCTV footage that emerged in the aftermath of the confusion and chaos.
Briguela allegedly asked a man to remove his pants. Briguela pushed the same guy. The bouncers prevented Briguela from attaching the man again.
Those videos are definitely not good for his public image.
Showbiz celebrities must be very careful when they are in public. With today’s smartphones and CCTVs that are more intelligent than Albert Einstein, it is very easy to accuse anyone especially if the accuser only relies on his POV or point of view.
It is best to first Google the meaning of the word you are using to accuse someone. For Briguela, the charges are physical injuries and assault. That can also be filed against people whose behavior fits the description of the police in those two cases.
The description must be official and not a mere fabrication of the accuser’s delusions. Because if the accuser is the type to tell anyone who cares to listen, he can spread lies instead of the truth and nothing but the truth. Once a gossip hears about it and spreads it to many people, there is the “accuser,” who does not know that he is now the favorite subject of the vineyard.
If you’ve been the victim of gossip, you know how it feels. And there are two more options: ignore the gossip and unfriend the one who started it all.
Anyone who flirts with you is not your friend, even if he has been your friend for a long time. He should not be hidden.
I once asked a so-called friend if he had any friends. After a few seconds of thought, he said, Nothing. At that time, I thought, how lonely his life must be. But on second thought, he is free. If he hears about someone gossiping about him, he doesn’t care because he doesn’t have any friends, though.
When you realize a friend is gossiping about you you stop and stare as Realization 101 rushes in.
What is the motive behind the gossip? To destroy you? To convince people to turn against you? To leave you without friends?
Spreading gossip can be stressful. The gossip now has to justify his accusation by adding more lies to his original story. Only fools, who also love to destroy other people’s lives, will listen to him as he drones on, repeating the same story over and over again. Ho-hum.
