[the rules]

5 do not worry about other people
is the fifth rule to live by
but it’s not exactly what it sounds like.

It does not mean to be selfish
to not care
to not love.

It means not to worry
about others thoughts
of you
but also
not to take accountability
for what they do.

Your compassion
your love
your care
should all go for others

but their choices
their actions
the hurt they inflict
is not your worry
not your fault.

Even though you
live with the consequences.
