Recently, someone I know did... something. It wasn't immoral, illegal or mean, but for some reason it really got to me. I yacked to hubby about it and ranted about it out loud (yes, I do that) as I was picking up around the house. I did this for about a day.
Suddenly I remembered reading something I had read from Byron Katie about the 3 kinds of business and thought, "I'm in the wrong business!". End of ranting.
THEY ARE: Your Own Business, God's Business and Everyone Else's Business.
The only business you have any control over is your own. Nobody else's and certainly not God's. He's dealing with a hell of a lot more than you or I. When we're in someone else's business, there's no flow, no ease. We become agitated, maybe even angry and certainly judgemental. It mucks up our well-being.
Gossiping is one of the most common ways of being in someone else's business and so is thinking about it. Even if you never mention it to anyone else and only think it, you are still taking away from yourself.
After my little (ahem) rant, I asked myself "why am I so hot about this?" and made a few personal discoveries. When something ticks us off, it really has to do with us. So next time you find yourself hot under the collar about something, ask yourself whether it's your business or not and why you're giving it so much attention. You might discover something interesting!
