“Mind your own business” may sound harsh, but it’s a gentle reminder to stay in your own lane and focus on yourself. Minding your own business is at its core focusing on what you can control and letting go of what you can’t. It is taking responsibility for your own thoughts and letting others take responsibility for themselves.
The most basic way to start to mind your own business is to ask yourself “Is this something I can control?”
The following are some steps you can take:
1. Listen without judgment or criticism or trying to “fix” them.
When someone talks to you about a problem, sometimes all they want is an ear or sounding board. There is nothing for you to fix, your role is to listen.
2. Take responsibility for yourself.
Taking responsibility for yourself means knowing that your thoughts and reactions are yours. No one is making you feel anything, it begins within so stop blaming others or the things happening around you.
3. Practice self-awareness.
Self-awareness is about observing your thoughts, habits, and actions without judgment. Practice observing yourself and noticing when you’re being drawn into another’s business and practice bringing your attention back to your own lane.
As you do this more, you will take more ownership of your own life, thoughts, and decisions.
