Suggestion; Hint; And A Clue To Pursue

If you feel you have a need,
To monitor someone else's activities...
With discussions brought up,
In social settings with others...
Who then begin to wonder,
Where your priorities are focused.
You should be the one to ask yourself,
Why would the doings of anyone...
To be 'their' business to be in 'your' mind,
In the first place?

Why is it you can not find the time,
To do what it is you do...
Without trying to convince at social events,
Others are not happy unless you approve...
Of how they live their lives AND with who!

Suggestion; hint; and a clue to pursue!
Your nose is perfectly fine on your own face.
And not sniffing the cracks behind people's backs.
Although, perhaps for you a comfortable position, but...
You may have grown too accustomed,
With a doing done to yet accept...
People who have matured with experiences endured,
Have found what it is to condone on their own.
To have left you committed to an existence,
Of an immaturity that will be yours for an eternity.
