Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably finished the line to the title "You in my business... don't do that." catchphrase.
Mind the business that pays you. It literally cost you $0.00 to mind your business.
I don't know about you but I am just a regular smegular girl. I don't think I am better than anyone else. I don't bother anyone, and I drink my water (wine too) and mind my business. That's it. That's all.
However, it seems as if when you are simply doing you, is when life hits you with the most. It doesn't matter what you are doing, regardless if it's good or bad; people will always find some way to discuss you and that's life.
A situation happened recently where I had to say to myself, “do you really want to leave your peaceful mindset for these people?" I thought to myself is it worth it? At the end of the day I'm the one who knows the truth, so why even indulge in the mess. There is nothing that you can do to change Miserable Mary's way of thinking so why bother? I used to take things so personal with people who should have meant nothing to me and wasted a lot of energy. That is long gone. Yes, the hurt is going to hurt, but I have learned not to linger in the hurt. Feel the emotions and let it go.
In this unfortunate situation, I realized that it is not me who is at fault, but the other parties involved. It's very unfortunate that people would want to see other people down, no matter the situation. Those type of people are miserable. There is something in these people whether past or present that makes them that way, and that is not on me, that is on them. It's evident that they have issues that they haven't resolved. No sir! No ma'am! Not my problem! The only thing that's my responsibility is to do what I can to maintain my peace, and mental.
Maintaining this is hard. Very hard. But it is apart of the growing and healing process. You have to take a step back and realize whatever issues the person that's all in your business have going on is way beyond your control.
Once you have mastered this, you can handle whatever comes your way.
Never allow anyone to throw you off your journey that you lose sight of where you are going!
Remember that people are going to judge you until you die. It is not your responsibility to wonder why, or to try and stop them. The only responsibility you have is to yourself and that is to always be authentically you, and give NO F**S about anyone opinion.
