It's not fair meddling with the work of another. It is always better to mind one's own business. Why try to burn one's fingers in anther's fire ?

I agree completely. Live and let live, as they say.

Yes, sukumar, if we tend to our own business, we will have our hands full. This will take up all of our time keeping our own noses clean. We have no right to meddle in other people's business. We may not like what they are doing and if not, we have to distance ourselves for that reason.

This is so true, but most humans tend to meddle in others affairs, it seems that it is part of our nature, sometimes to be of help and we end up getting burned, other times some people just like to be curious about the situation and end up being the cause of more hurt or hurt themselves. But that is a great analogy!

Yeah, that makes me wonder too sometimes. Some people just don't know how to stay away from others's affairs.

It is not right, fair, or just to stick our noses into someone else's business, I agree; however, it does seem to be a part of human nature to want to do so anyway. People just can't seem to help themselves!

I like that saying. We would be better off minding our own business, unless we are invited in, to help. You can really embarass yourself sounding off and acting like an expert, when you do not know anything about what you are doing or saying.

Oh yes, I totally agree with you, sukumar. I detested meddlesome people who don't know how to mind their own. I've seen a lot of people like that. I don't mind close friends meddling on my life. They know when to meddle if I allowed them. Otherwise, they will leave me alone.

It is sure better to mind your own business. I'm not sure why people try to get involved with what is other peoples business.

I have the opinion that man is a social animal and sometimes we have to meddle with other's problem sometimes and meddling is not always bad.
