Everyone has experienced those types of folks who think they are better than everyone else. You know who I’m talking about. Generally, the people who used to be popular in high school, who are no longer as popular as the world told them they would be. The very same people who are now grown, forgettable, working average jobs and are getting paid minimum wage at most.
Somehow in their own little delusional world, everything still revolves around them. As much as we want to point our fingers and laugh at the mistake they’ve made of thinking they are the greatest thing since sliced bread, some part of us, a part maybe the size of a mustard seed, can’t help but to acknowledge their commitment in being rightfully shallow and arrogant about their own greatness. If there’s one thing we can take from these people, it’s the fact that they understand there is an “I” in “me, myself & I.”
- “I am the best!”
- “I can do no wrong!”
- “I don’t need you to agree because your opinion doesn’t matter.”
To us, those people may not amount to a hill of beans but they are confident enough to believe otherwise.
Like all the supercilious folks on the planet, we need to find the confidence within ourselves to admit that we are special, different, and perfect in our own eyes because no one else will. Everyone else is too busy being as special as we are and even more so consumed with reminding us why we don’t match up to their personal expectations of us.
There’s one thing that we all fail to realize. Everyone has flaws. It kind of levels the playing field, don’t you think? You may not have as many flaws as the next person but you do have them. You just have to know how to make them work for you. And if you can’t, then you really have to know how to do one of two things:
- Pin point the flaws of others and make them sound a hundred times worse than they actually are, or
- Be clever enough not to show the public that your flaws are as embarrassing as people make them out to be. In other words, know when and how to lie.
Embrace your crooked teeth, split ends and small wardrobe. Your shortcomings are a part of you that makes you different from the next person. It is what makes you memorable — unless you have bad B.O. (body odor). There is no walking away from that.
So the next time someone walks up and says to you, “You think you’re all that,” you respond to them, “Yes I do. Thank you for noticing.” It doesn’t take that much to be a part time egotistical, conceited mutha-effer who doesn’t think his own sh*t stinks. 90% of any effort is getting started. Try a little harder and f*ck what anyone else thinks! The world is your oyster. Use the shell to throw at all the ugly people who are way less important than you are and remember — Hottywood Helps!
Quote of the week: “To attempt to advise conceited people is like whistling against the wind.”
