If things have juuust gone down and rumours are flying, the best thing to do for now is lay low. Not that you can’t go hang with your friends, or hit that cool party, but don’t try to talk about the rumours with anyone. Just act like they aren’t doing the rounds. This is super hard to do, especially when people are treating you weirdly and you see others talking about you. But getting wound up can just fuel the ~drama~. You want the noise to die down before you start work on that rep – and 100 per cent, it will. You’ve just gotta give the rumour mill time to get bored.
