5 Things To Help You Mind Your Own Business

With all the things that we see everyday, people we encounter and things that we hear or read, its very hard not to judge or mind. But believe it or not I’m trying my best not to. Its hard, but I always try to look at things at a different perspective.

20121228-055816.jpg Let me share to you these 5 things that you can tell yourself before trying to mind other’s business. I think its working for me.

I don’t know the whole story. Most of the time, what we see or hear is just one part. Remember the “Amalayer” incident? we just saw the scene when the student is yelling at the lady security guard. How about the rest of the story? How did it start? Its very simple, if we have not seen or heard both sides, we should stay out of it.

No one asked for my point of view. We all have something to say. We are not robots. But even if we know that we are right and no one asked for our insights and especially when we don’t have something good to say, we should keep our thoughts to ourselves.

Other’s happiness might not be my type of happiness. Its very easy to judge a person based on what makes him happy. But we should always remember that we all have different levels of happiness. Checking in at a coffee shop on Foursquare might not be your thing but it may for others. Its just all about respecting our differences.

It doesn’t affect me. As long as you are not involved in whatever they are doing or saying and if no amount of your time and energy was used, you should not be affected. Stay in your place.

Its their lives, not mine. Very simple. Its their speech, their ways, their rules and in the end, their responsible for it. Most of the time, it is better to focus on your own life that be stressed out with others’.

I haven’t read the bible but I found this very nice verse on the internet.

“And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you.”1 Thessalonians 4:11
