Minding Your Business

We have all been in situations where either ones are not minding their own business and or we have not been minding our own business. I have learned over the years to mind my own business. In the end it’s not worth the headache and or mess that comes with it. Sometimes not minding your own tend to get us in situations that’s over our heads. That’s where a real lesson comes in. Some people have to learn the hard way and face whatever consequences that comes with that lesson. I know I have from getting involved when I thought I could be helpful or was not agreeing with certain situations.

It can be very irritating and frustrating when someone feels that they just have to butt in to your conversation. It really tests someone’s nerves when someone has to constantly know what they’re doing where they’re going, and why they’re doing that. But what if you are the one doing it to other people. You don’t want to annoy people, so here’s how you can do that.

Try not to butt in. Some people might have no trouble minding their own business and could care less about what you’re doing or talking about. But others can’t help it. It’s just natural for them to butt in on everything.

Ask yourself why you are butting in. Before you go interrupt someone, ask yourself: “Does this concern me?” If what they are doing is going to somehow affect you in anyway, then it does concern you. But if it’s just gossip or someone is going out with their friend, then it doesn’t concern you.

Walk Away instead of butting in If you figure out that it doesn’t concern you at all, then walk away. Don’t be near the person so you don’t even get a chance to butt in. If it does concern you, then you have a right to listen and interrupt.

Become oblivious and disinterested. Try to be the least interested in people as possible. Be oblivious to what goes on around others. If you feel the need to interrupt someone or find out what they are doing, think about it first. It’s just like the saying: “Think before you speak”.

If you do overhear something of note between two people, or a group of people, but the topic does not concern you or affect you in any way, then let the matter stay between the people it concerns.
