Do you know those people who are more worried about other people's business than their own? We all know one of those people.
I think the struggle is how not to become one of those people...while still feeling like I stand up for those less fortunate than me.
And sometimes, I guess partly because of what I do for work, I find myself looking other people's situations, and I see all the worst case scenarios in whatever happens to be going in their lives. I mean - I AM an insurance agent; I have to see risks to help people limit them.
However, it means that when I'm not at work I find myself way too concerned about situations that I have no control or influence over...and most of the time, the situation is none of my business in the first place.
"Not my circus; not my monkeys." - Polish proverb
So last year, I decided to adopt a mantra that would help me realize when I don't need to be emotionally involving myself in situations that don't really concern me.
And luckily, Kacey Musgraves has a song for that. Have you checked out her newest album?
Do you ever find yourself worrying too much about other people's lives? How do you just stay focused on your circle of influence?
