Sort out your own life

The New Age (Gauteng) - - COMMENT -

I HAVE seen many peo­ple who are more con­cerned with what hap­pens next door than their own lives.

This is ev­i­dent in our ad­dic­tion to Europe’s news and sport, rather than events in our coun­try. We have enough prob­lems but we still add to them with mat­ters that doesn’t con­cern us. We are so good at ask­ing for more trou­ble.

Life is too short to be for­ever wor­ried when we are sup­posed to be em­brac­ing our lives ev­ery chance we get. As my favourite say­ing has it: “We live once, and die once.” It seems like most peo­ple tends to for­get that. We should con­cern our­selves with our own lives as that would be a great start to get on with our lives.

We don’t have to butt in where there is no need to do so. Prob­lems never end, so it’s bet­ter to face them our­selves and deal with them as they come our way.
