A mother in our mother’s group keeps gossiping about me?

It can be difficult to deal with someone who is gossiping about you. One approach you could take is to address the situation directly with the person who is spreading the gossip. You could have a private conversation with them and express how their behavior is affecting you and ask them to stop. It may also be helpful to have a clear and assertive response prepared in case the gossiping continues. Additionally, you could also consider limiting your interactions with the person or leaving the mother’s group if the issue cannot be resolved.

It’s also a good idea to consider reaching out to the group leader or moderator and asking them to intervene on your behalf. They may be able to offer support and guidance, or even mediate a conversation between you and the person who’s gossiping about you.

Another thing you could do is to focus on your own well-being and surround yourself with positive and supportive people. This can help counteract the negative effects of gossip and help you regain a sense of security and control.
