My Problem (Written August 8, 2019)
You know what my problem is?
It’s not knowing what problem is mine.
Others have struggles that mean nothing to me
And that, I think, is absolutely fine.
But what do I do? I worry and stress,
I try to help when I’d do better to go.
I cause myself more trouble than anything is worth,
And it’s a problem more stressful for the fact that I know.
My problem is not keeping my nose to myself,
Where it isn’t wanted or appreciated at all,
Sticking it in to more than I can help or handle,
Just leaving me to feel lost, unwanted, and small.
I remind other people to mind their own business all the time- mildly ironic, at best, no? As I’m sitting here feeling guilty for something that has nothing much to do with me I’m really wishing I could just take my own advice. Is it my business? No? Then I’ll stay out of it!
Ha! I wish. I’ve gotten way too nosy lately. No more! I’m back to taking care of my own business first. Goodness knows I’m not handling it well enough to pretend I have the time or resources to handle other people’s business as well.
