    I am fed up... the last 2-3 days my friends and different forums have called me a meddler because according to them I "mind other people's business" too much.

    But I'd like to ask you: why is something "not our business"?

    Aren't we all one society, one humanity (that's my belief).

    If someone cheats on her girlfriend, I tell the girlfriend. Why would that be wrong of me?

    If I cheated on my girl, and you told her, I'd probably beat the hell out of you, cos its not your relationship, stay out of it

    Ah... I don't understand this world anymore

    seriously

    I think I should go to Mars.

    This world is not for me.

    I don't even know why there is such an expression as "mind your own business". That's one of the harshest things I could ever hear.

    And I never understand why they tell it.

    I would never tell someone to mind their own business...

    All right, settle down there Dr Manhattan.

    People are entitled to their privacy, people are entitled to conduct their own business without others knowing or interfering. If you really can't understand this then I would suggest you seek professional help, as the view point that everyone should share everything with everyone is a very odd one.
