Quite some lesson.

What is really the offence. Gossip or not Trusting God. Both? I think the first one could be difficult,sometimes comments on people character could be helpful if the truth is spoken. I need some more enlightenment.

i think that we should not gossip because it's wrong. Hashem doesn't like people that do that. People gossip because that way they could get more attention and be more popular. I don't gossip because it's saying lashon hara.

How to cope with problems

I am trying to avoid loshon hora and it is very difficult. When I am upset, I like to discuss what is bothering me and it is how I process the event. Also, I have troublesome family members whose antics totally upset me and I find myself discussing them with my husband to vent and to find a solution. The words I say are often harsh because I am upset over poor treatment. If I did not talk, I don't know how else I could cope with problems. The talking is part of getting over the problem.

simple, but powerful

Of course, i am left with a quest. One can truly trust G-d and still be very distressed with anothers behaviour, what does one do when the stress is bad they think u have heart problems you are not letting things out
