Why won't people mind their own business?

I hate people who does not mind their own business and always keeps their attention to others people's life.They keep on talking about you to other people saying why is she like this and like that and the bad thing is that they even compare you to other people.Maybe they are concern but they should not tell things about you and just mind their own life.People like that are just looking for something bad just to make you really bad to others. I really hate people like that they should look at their own face first before they look at some one else.

I can't stand people like that either it's just them wanting to cause drama and problems with others. I try to stay out of that stuff it makes you look bad and then nobody is going to want to be your friend. Have you tried confronting that person and ask them why they are doing this? It's obviously they don't have a life and nothing else better to do with their time. I would just ignore that person and your real friends would know the real truth and know she is just starting trouble and will stick by you on it. If not then their not a true friend if they listen to someone elses gossip that doesn't know the whole truth.

We cant really please everyone so there are always people out there and around us that always say bad things about us, trying to put us down and always notice or watch every single move and things we do instead of minding their own life. I guess we should not bothered anjust try to ignore them to avoid getting annoyed and irritated that might bring joy to them and might think that we are affected by them. They are not worth it of our time so better not mind them and go own with our happy life.

People have learnt few ethical words from perhapes books. These few words always make them itch as they even are not within them. So to hide their own sores they dont mind their own bussiness. But situations changed in my country, people are not idling away their time or dont get any spare time. People are to engage themselves to their own work. So hardly they get any time to poke their noses into other affairs. Such ill criticism happens in the rural areas where lots of people have lots of time to spend.

People love drama. Especially if they have boring lives. They think they are being constructive, when in fact, they are adding to the drama. Some people are just not content just watching soap operas.

Here is what I've learned about people who are exceptionally nosy. First of all, they either have NO life, or a terrible one. The reason YOU or others are so interesting to them is because they are trying to escape their own life or they are bored and/or lonely. Drama is created by sad, insecure, bored people BECAUSE they are sad, insecure, and boring. A lot of these people invent things too - there have been times when I see I am tagged in photos places where I have NOT been, or someone posted to someone else that 'she did this' or 'she did that' and I have no idea what they are even talking about. Apparently I have a very interesting and fun parallel life of which I only get limited knowledge about . Anyway, I don't think there's anything we can do about this behavior, other than ignore it, share very little with the people you note do this a lot, and maybe cut down your interactions with them. I usually WAY cut down my interactions with people like this because if they have little to no access to spending time in real life with me, they have nothing really to fabricate, make up, or pretend, and if they try, the people I ACTUALLY spend time with will say 'no, she was with me, not pole dancing in Tanzania' or whatever. One more thing - people who believe what others might say about you WITHOUT HAVING MET YOU or WITHOUT KNOWING ANYTHING PERSONALLY about you are probably not worth your time or worthy of your friendship anyway. I never believe stuff I hear from others - I meet people and make my own observations FIRST. If my experience matches what other people have said and it's not good, then I decide what to do based on the whole picture, but I am not petty enough to just 'dislike' or 'dishonor' somebody I don't even know that I haven't even met based on some ramblings of someone else who could be lying. Unless it's a very close friend or my husband or something, it's not worth trusting gossip or drama.

I always think while they may be talking about other people they will also talk about me when I'm not around to them. Having an interest in other people is a good thing but if it becomes harmful then it is time to back off, yeah!

People like that love to waste their time talking idle, it is their way of spending their life hour away. They probably like to snoop around other people's life too and fond of every details in other people's life. They are really a big turn off for me to be around.

hi blinjk well it takes all kinds to make this old world and since we cannot change everyone to what we would like them to be, actually if we minded our own business and did not worry so much about what some stranger thought of us or said about us,we would be much happier. let them talk as most intelligent people will not listen to someone who is minding others business.If you refuse to let this crap stress you out, they will soon leave for greener pastures.So they talk about you, forget that a nd move away from these sick gossips. Your health and your life are too importantg to crumble under someones gossip. ignore them, they just pollute the air. strive for friends who you know are real friends. welcome to mylot blinjk do not sweat the small stuff and most of the t hings that stress us are small things
