Is It Bad To Be Curious About Others?

Author: Dr. Ali Khwaja

Perma-link for article:

My grandfather taught me that it is bad to be curious or to poke your nose into other people’s lives. I have stuck to that principle. But surprisingly, I find more and more people who want others to be curious about them. It started with going on social media and telling the whole world your day-to-day activities, ‘status’, friends, what you ate, where you went etc. I think people are getting more lonely, hence they are craving for attention. They want others to know what is happening in their life, even if it is very mediocre, so that they feel important. But isn’t it better and sufficient to have just one or two important people in your life who genuinely care?
