Mind Your Own Business

We all know that what other people choose to do with their lives is none of our business; that being said, is it solely our own wrongdoing if we decide to pass our personal judgment onto others?

We were raised to compare ourselves to someone, who might be perceived by our parents and society at large to be better than we were. We felt pressured and aspired to become those people someday as adults. As adults, we are told to be mindful of what is happening around the world. Sayings, such as “Education is a never-ending journey,” force us to look into those fine prints of a published news story in hopes of digging out the meanings and trends underneath those alphabetical letters. Having been long trained to observe the beats and vibes of the outside world, I wonder how we can get blamed for doing something that we have been taught and told to do all along our lives but on a smaller scale?

Some may argue that it is precisely the difference in greater significance that distinguishes our urging a politician not to charge ahead with his decision from our telling someone to split up with his girlfriend. Although an argument as such may be valid; however, others would still argue that the nature of the basic act is still the same, which is our intervention in an affair that doesn’t require our input to begin with.
