Now that we have the ability to continuously monitor other people through social media and other online platforms, the amount of people who intervene in other peoples’ personal lives is growing each day.
Many people seem to feel as though they have a right to comment on the decisions of other people even though it is literally none of their business.
Sometimes it is necessary to comment on the actions of certain people if they are being hateful or harmful to others. For example, if someone posts a video of themselves saying a racial slur, I think it is appropriate for other people to hold them accountable.
When people are being hateful or hurting others, it is important for them to face consequences. However, in all other cases, we should stay out of other peoples’ business.
There is a big difference between holding people accountable for hateful actions and having an opinion on things that other people do that have no direct impact on others.
There are so many instances where people react to the decisions of others when it is unnecessary and uncalled for.
One example of this is peoples’ reactions to how others choose to express themselves. If a man is wearing a dress, there is absolutely no reason to have a negative reaction to that. It is completely up to the individual to decide what they want to wear and how they want to look. It has nothing to do with you.
I don’t understand why it is so difficult for some people to avoid judging others. This judgement can lead to real-life consequences for many people.
An example of this can be seen with recent legislation in Arkansas. In 2021 so far, Arkansas has passed various laws that interfere with the personal choices of others.
Governor Asa Hutchinson signed one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country into law in Arkansas in March. This is an example of legislators having an opinion on something that is none of their business. I think it should be up to each individual woman to decide if they need an abortion because each individual woman is living through a different set of circumstances.
In April, Arkansas became the first state in the United States to prohibit physicians from providing gender-affirming treatment for trans people under age 18. This is another example of legislators intervening in peoples’ personal lives when they should not have the authority to do that.
What other people choose to do in their personal lives is not something that others get to have an opinion about. It is wrong to make laws that take away peoples’ freedom of choice.
If someone is making a personal choice for themselves, you have no reason to say whether that is okay or not. It is not your business.
If you feel yourself leaning towards unfair judgement, stop yourself from letting those thoughts develop any further. It is not your business.
There is no reason for you to care about what other people are doing. Focus on yourself and let other people live their lives in peace.
Everyone should make it a daily practice to mind their own business. It would make the world a better and nicer place.
