How clever you are, highly observant, noticing the foibles in others. I agree, there are assholes everywhere.
Unfortunately, while busy observing others, you are not paying attention to the clues of your own assholeness.
Aren’t you lovely going around and pointing out everyone’s shit. Certainly, the world needs some cleaning up.
“Pick up your shit,” you yell knowingly.
Arrogantly you believe your shit does not smell. A little aside? All shit smells. While you focus elsewhere, your own shit festers, alongside the assholes’ shit you call out. Not your fault, the truth is that none of us can smell their own shit or at least, we know it but forget that we too keep making shit that smells.
I wondered from listening to your rants about the assholes, who exactly deserves that label. While you would have a long list of asshole behavior, I found only one reason. Whittled down into its basic, assholes lack self-awareness.
Interestingly I see that you also lack this basic attribute. For how could you be practicing self-awareness if you are so focused on others?
Are you paying attention to the smell of your own shit? I have my doubts. Increasing self-awareness requires a dedicated intent to become aware of our own behavior. I see evidence you have not done this.
I will give you an example. The other day you posted one those pre-authored quotes. “I love real people who say what they mean and mean what they say. No fluff, no lies and no pretense.”
Except dearest one, you mention others to me in a cutting and disparaging way while smiling, feigning good feelings and offering – let’s do lunch – when those others are present. Is that being real to you?
I know. It’s okay. I understand. You hadn’t noticed that you do this. If you had, then you would be practicing self-awareness and would have realized your phoniness.
Be advised, we are all assholes! We all need to increase our self-awareness. Believing that you are exempt defines you as an ass too.
