Why do we worry so much about what other people do?

I notice as humans we tend to form opinions on people we know nothing about, criticize, question, and concern ourselves with things that don't directly affect themselves. Why? I'm not saying I've never done so and realized it later. But I just don't have the time with the crap in my life that needs dealing with.

  • I agree with you. People love to gossip about other people and form opinions and judge them. It's not our place to judge people.

  • Well from your post I read that you are still concerned about why others think about others. That shouldn't be any concern of yours. We do it because we have no life?, or we like to imagine? or because we can? Not being snotty or bashing but it's just human nature/error.

  • I used to do it because i was young and thought that I did know it all. When I grew up, I now give advice based on a mixture of life experiences, research, and what I've seen happen to others. Of course young mom's think I'm out of my mind because "a doctor, a teacher" etc told them. I don't judge, but I do hate to see the path that some people are going down when I know it can be destructive and I want to stop them before something bad happens to them or their children.

  • Cause we are human and have to know it all.

  • I have a couple neighbors like that- drives me nuts. I am a very quiet and private person, and they think I have something to hide because of this. These neighbors do not have anything better to do, I guess. lol I'm really not all that interesting.
