A minding your own business

Updated on August 17, 2016

Brandi has been a stay at home mom for eleven years. She has a love for Thriller and mystery books, and just finished "All the Lost Souls"

This morning as I read through my Facebook to see what others were busy with I stopped on an article that a lady wrote. It was about her shopping with her adopted daughter and a stranger giving her parenting tips on not spoiling her daughter. The poor little girl had a horrible first ten months where she was not loved or taken car of and finally she found a family that would love her and coddle her to show her love and patience.

This woman in the store knew nothing of what that family has been through, and yet here was her unsolicited advice. As I was reading this my mind was turning over and thinking about all the times people did this to me. Or I have had an opinion about what another mother is doing. Although I never open my mouth and make myself a rude person I do have the thoughts. Imagine how wonderful the world would be if everyone minded their own business. You don't know what others are going through, have been through or what kind of life they have been living. To judge someone on the thirty seconds you see them might just be a little unfair.

When was the last time you went to the store and smiled at someone? Or maybe got something off of a tall shelf for someone who couldn't reach it otherwise. This is a motion for movement. To see if people will follow me in turning their negative thoughts off and trying to see the world through another person's eyes.

My story is not a horrible one at all, but I will say that I have been shamed in a store. I was shopping with my two girls and two babies that I watch. Now four children in my opinion in not a lot. Apparently, for one lady in a store it was way to many. As she passed me she mumbled in my direction that "she must have never heard of birth control". Me being me, I giggled. It's none of her business that only two of them were mine. She felt that it was though, and while that could have ticked me off and ruined my day I smiled. However, there are so many people out there who are trying to live their lives and others opinions weigh heavily on them. It ruins their day. It ruins their self worth and for what? Nothing more than your opinion and while you decided to open your mouth and be rude and made yourself feel high and mighty for a few minutes you ruined that persons day.

It's time that we change into a nation that loves each other instead of one that beats each other up.
