Other People’s Business

The best policy regarding other people’s business is to leave it to them. Should you find yourself wittingly or unwittingly involved in the affairs of others, keep them to yourself. While it may seem sweet to share intimate knowledge with those, who like all of us, are predisposed to gossip about it, much sweeter is the knowledge that nobody was told about it, especially when it becomes apparent that discretion was the best policy.


Jealousy is something that ends many relationships. It makes no sense in the final analysis. Why? Because if somebody is playing around on you, being jealous is not going to bring them back, and if you are jealous when there is nothing to be jealous of–which is too often the case–you lose your loved one over a figment of your imagination. Either way, life is too short to waste your time.
