Whose business do you mind?
May 7, 2017

Ever notice how the people who spend the most time criticizing you are the least likely to have a life you aspire to? Remembering that helps me keep from visibly bristling at their not-so-well-meaning suggestions. I swap lives with them in my head, and it helps me understand -- or at least imagine -- how tearing someone down would be a welcome distraction.

I still run for cover, though. I’m not that evolved.

I always want to say, “Mind your own business!” And I always stop myself. Instead I think, “No. Do whatever you want.”

Nothing says “I’m not minding my own business” like noticing when others aren’t minding theirs.
