It’s Not All About You

Shhh… It’s not all about you!

Do you ever find yourself battling inner thoughts relating to other people? Are you trying to figure out why your friends said this or that? Shhh… It’s not all about you!

How many times have you wasted energy on things you will never figure out? Shhh… It’s not all about you.

Ever wondered why a friend won’t reply your text or phone calls. Noticed someone acting strange? Maybe, just maybe it’s not about you!

Let people be if they choose to be strange, it’s ok. We are all strange at times. Sometimes people have bigger fish to fry than we think. Say a little prayer for them and go about your business. 

We waste so much time and energy on issues that are of no value to us. Stop it! It’s really not all about you.

For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. (1 Cor 2:11 ESV)

You will never understand why people do what they do. I can assure you everything is not all about you.

Overthinking and analyzing someone else’s life and business is a sign of an ineffective
use of our time. Mind your own business and if you don’t have one, start one. 

I cannot tell you how many years of my life I’ve wasted trying to figure out why someone didn’t respond to my email, or text encouraging him or her. Why no one left a comment on my blog. Why this, why that and why? Jeez! Get over it, get over yourself Buky – It’s not all about you!

Here is what Jesus said to Peter when He wasn’t minding his business.

21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “But Lord, what about this man?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.” John 21:21-22, NKJV.

So the next time you find yourself once again down that road, tell yourself  “What is that to you?”. Pray and keep moving on.

It works for me all the time.
