Why spend your time indulged in someone else’s life, when you could be making improvements to your own life? Gossiping is a waste, there are so many productive things to do instead of eaves dropping on someone’s life. When you choose to actively participate in gossip, you are saying that there is nothing else you could be doing instead. You are wasting your time and resources, making you seem as though you nave nothing important happening. If you are bored with your life, consider finding something to give it more meaning; NOT digging into a life that is not your own.
