It’s so easy to get sidetracked by observing others and comparing how we stack up against them. While looking to others for inspiration helps our growth, measuring our worth against their accomplishments only slows us down.
Here’s six reasons why you need to stop being nosey!
#1 You will feel lighter.
Brooding about things you can’t change especially when on behalf of another person can contribute to a lot of unhappiness. You will feel no pressure once you realized just how much of what you worried about was not at all for you to worry about!
#2 Your to-do list will get shorter.
Being nosy = taking on extra responsibilities, and extra responsibilities = more stress. If a problem arose at work, do you insert yourself into the fray in order to help offer a solution or moral support? You need to remind yourself that not everything is your business, and it will be way easier for you to trust others to do their job.
#3 You’ll realize how little credit you’ve been giving to others.
You owe it to the people in your life, whether they’re family, friends, co-workers, or significant others, to make their own mistakes and figure out how to fix them. Minding your own business lets you take a step back and give them room to solve their own sh*t.
#4 You’ll finally be face to face with your own sh*t.
When you’re not concerning yourself with other people’s business, guess what you’re left with? Staying out of things that don’t involve you will help you focus on the things that do. Trust me, you will have a lot more time to fret about your own life choices, career path, and goals for the future.
#5 You’ll find it easier to stop another nosy person in their tracks.
Being a nosy person will only bring more nosy people into your life. But once you’ve chosen the path of minding your own business, it’s a lot more fun to remind others to do the same. People will always want to offer advice, because they love you and have your best interest at heart. But being able to hear those opinions and not let them judge you for yours will get a lot easier.
#6 You’ll be happier!
Tying yourself up in other people’s business only ruins your own joy! And staying in your lane doesn’t make you rude or unsympathetic; it makes you someone who is emotionally healthy enough to create boundaries. Those boundaries will help the people in your life work out their own issues without you interfering and making it about you and that makes you a better person in the long run.
