Arrogance ain't peachy

Even though I usually focus on all the good things here on the blog, sometimes I also frankly say out loud what I don’t like so much and today let’s have a conversation about arrogance. Arrogance is a character trait that I truly hate. I can’t stand arrogant people, they are a pain in the ass IMHO.

So, arrogance ain’t peachy at all. It is not sexy, not helpful and people should better come down to earth and treat their fellow humans with kindness instead of looking down at them while feeling like the personification of God. No dear arrogant person, you are not. Get down on your feet and get real about yourself.

I guess the reason for some folks being arrogant and living in their own sphere is inner security. They feel like shit about themselves and try hiding it through being arrogant and letting anyone around them feel worthless. Or I could imagine that narcissism is another reason for people being arrogant pricks. Oh, narcissists are the worst, I think this is a topic for itself for another blog post.

I even unfollow people on Instagram if I find them arrogant, regardless of how awesome their photos or designs are, for me arrogance is a true no-brainer. I prefer following peachy kind people instead but sometimes I wonder if Instagram is still for me anyways. In the beginning it was cool and all about documenting your daily life with crappy photos and now it is more an advertisement platform and everything seems so fake, staged and unreal. I think I keep on sticking with it but should probably reduce my online time so I also don’t fall into the damn comparison trap (hello FB looking at you) which makes Instagram now very similar to FB. Everyone is just showing the best things, jet setting through the world and so on. Instagram still works for me though, I am not hating it like I hated FB before I left, but it has changed into a direction I am not a fan of.

OK enough bitching for today, normally I try to look at all the good things life has to offer and to be grateful and usually that helps and leaves me in a mellow state of optimism and happiness but on certain days it is just not possible due to feeling crappy and circumstances making things worse. Hello German over-regulated Government I am looking at you here but I am not diving into this right now or I am about to cry which is clearly not what I want. I want to get back on track of my journey of happiness, abundance and designing the life I truly desire and I will get on track for sure. I need to because otherwise I fall down into a deep hole of depression, fear and anxiety and that is certainly the worst case scenario. So instead I focus on the good and continue working for my goals, create and write as much as I can and then happiness and ease shall return.
