Living and Letting Live

I wonder why so many have a difficult time living and letting live.
What is it that causes a person to be so preoccupied with another’s life, situation, money, choices, etc. that they actually forego their own living?
(Which is really what gossip, judgement, excessive attention all amount to).
And, if there’s no truly worthwhile reason (such as an emergency, for example) then what degree and sort of pain, insecurity, inadequacy, yearning, emotional / mental / spiritual non-health must reside in one to agree to forfeit time from their own life, which of course can never be gotten back, in order to expend it so wastefully, or, even worse, harmfully, on another’s?
