Blind Superiority

You’re using me.

Do you think I can’t see?

Or are you so fucked up

you can’t see

for yourself?

 

 

As humans, we enjoy shining a light on the flaws of others when we have problems of our own. We resort to “shit-talking” to feel superior, to project our own flaws and insecurities onto others, and it works. 

 

Don’t be the person on either side. Don’t project your problems onto others by talking badly about them and don’t let others use you to project their own problems on others: my newest goal.
