Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

There is enough drama in your own life you don’t need to add more. When someone tries to draw you into their mess, this Polish Proverb comes to mind “Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys.”

While a circus is fun to watch, you don’t have the time or emotional energy to get involved.

Don’t get distracted…”SQUIRREL!”

Otherwise, you’re in danger of opening a barrel of monkeys…easy to open, virtually impossible to put back!

Better to avoid it all together….walk away, go to another website, change the channel. Save your sanity for things you can actually do something about.

I hadn’t heard of this saying before and was surprised how popular it was. There are so many creative artists who have put their spin on this important proverb!
