Sometimes I’m very impressed by people
That is, I’m impressed by their idiocy
The real problem is that they don’t understand how they are being stupid
They don’t know!
Everyone is oblivious to their own shortcomings!
Why improve yourself when you can loudly improve others?
People feel very entitled
Gross, disgusting entitlement
Specifically, we feel entitled to our supposed right to judge others
Wont to our pride
Wont to the idea that it’s someone else’s fault
Wont to be offended
But we know ourselves so well
We know that WE deserve a second chance, cause we didn’t mess up that bad
But those other people, man, they need to get it together
We see it so clearly
I’m not sure we realize
that is exactly what those other people think too
We think like that
They think like that
Everyone thinks like that!
We’re all idiots!
When we blame them
They blame us
Obviously, we’re wrong
We messed up
It’s our bad!
How could they think that?
It is undeniably plain that THEY are the erroneous ones!
It’s so clear!
Why are they being so difficult?
. . .
Let’s redefine “wont”
As hard as that may be, since most people don’t know what it means in the first place
Stop being entitled
Stop looking at conflict through such a biased lens
Stop focusing so much on what other people do wrong
It will drive you crazy
Sure, I get it
You’re an iceberg
They can’t understand you
They don’t understand why you KNOW
Beyond a shadow of a doubt!
That You are right!
You’re not the only iceberg in the house
Don’t melt in your pride
