We live in a world where everyone wants to know what the next (wo)man is doing. If they don't definitively know, then more often than not they'll ASSume and spread the worst about you.
What people assume should be none of our concern. As I'm on this journey through life I'm learning that if people are talking about you assuming they know more about your life than you, it only means that you're a relevant vessel in their empty lives OR they're just plain nosey. Whatever the reason just chalk it up to flattery.
My best advice to people that feel the need to always want to be in the know is, in the line of business the best business is to mind your own business and if you don't have any business of your own, then make it your business to leave other people's business alone.
MIND THE BUSINESS THAT PAYS YOU.
