“Minding one’s own business is the most profitable of all businesses.”
― Amit Abraham
It is the “thang” to criticize or judge people on simple lifestyle behavior. It is expected that abhorrent behavior is publicly criticized. Abhorrent behavior is behavior that is detestable or repulsive especially if it is a leader. I am tickled when I read certain criticisms, for example: People got in their feelings about Chrissy Teigen being called a chef when she was working with a chef. Folks, SO WHAT. Julia Roberts was sitting at home in regular clothes in her regular life playing cards with a little girl and people criticized her for not having her hair done and no makeup on her face…REALLY? People criticize who people date, breastfeeding babies in public, what people’s children look like and why the children don’t look like their parents…OMG!
Maybe it’s me but do people have a life anymore? Do people ever think about how they would feel if they were judged on how they look or act? In these judgmental times you really have to have thick skin and be able to ignore the small minded. I remember someone approaching me in the church, “You know, they have products that would help you grow your hair.” I stood there with a blank stare on my face. I replied, “Oh” as she continued the conversation about wigs and some more stuff. Then folks follow up with a half-handed compliment on how cute you are…LOL! I am one of those people who really don’t care what other people think about how I look. I have the “Christian”, both men and women, step to me quoting “a woman’s hair is her crown and glory” because they cannot handle a woman being bald. Let us be clear bible quoters, it says in 1 Corinthians 11:15 “But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.” Did you get the “if”?
I fully understand the artists and other famous folks who reject social media. People, it would behoove us to mind our business. It is our right as citizens to keep an eye on the leadership of this country especially when their behavior gives this country a black-eye. It is not our job to pigeon-holed one another in how we live in our everyday lives.
Faith is Believing when common sense tells you not to!
