We all Humans have pride on at least one thing or the other. Maybe that thing is common between two people or maybe different. But, what that pride gives us is way more toxic.
We all are surrounded by thousands of different views of conditions of life which can be seen through different people. We all are special in our worlds and maybe also in someone else. But, what we all have in common is Imperfection.
Admit it, we all have weaknesses, plus, there’s one thing we, the HUMANS, Prefer not to admit, but we all possess, it is Arrogance.
I see, confidence turns into overconfidence, which I can say is the Nature or side effect of PRIDE. But, it is really IRONIC because most of the time is not Correct for that TIME. I suppose, you people may agree with the point that PRIDE turns one into Self-Centred. Maybe for short period of time, but during that time we’re portraying our hesitation and doubt about something.
We try to excessively share our Insecurities by giving self-assurance to convince others we’re perfect for that particular thing.
But, think, if one is truly happy and content with their achievements, you won’t be required to talk about yourself, in order to impress or show off to the people around. The person would be seeking other’s acceptance because your self-approval would be enough. Well, remember, the people who care about us will never point our problems in nature in any way.
Well, the problem is with us, we are grown up with a basic human nature, ‘Never Accept Your Flaws’, which led us to hide our eagerness with a sense of False Proud. Well, False Proud is not a word, it is used to describe the Human Tendency which we use, to hide what is Imperfect within us.
It’s like, our primary motto of life has been to hide our doubts, and not to show the flaw within Us. I am not saying we should always represent ourselves as the person who have all the flaws, and is sharing with every other person. But, Just don’t turn a Narcissist for that time when you are in DOUBT ask, Don’t Show off what is not relevant during that time.
Remember, the more we talk self-praising words, the more we are creating distance between us and the other person. The rift, once created will go deeper, as we show self-importance, just because we can’t accept Criticism.
Well, on the end note I Would like to share, a small instance, which I experienced last year November. It was an Interview for the JOB. Everything was ok, till the time I shared what I have done, what I can do, And Why I am looking for the Job. But, the So-called Young Entrepreneurs of India, more specifically Indore, wanted to know my Social Service experience, what is so good within me other than my working ability that will leave both the interviewer at the null point, to just give me the JOB at the TIME only.
Well, there I was short of Words. Not, because I had Nothing to say in that situation, But, because I don’t believe in Self-Praising. I did something, it’s in front of people, they will like it, I will get the appreciation, They won’t liked it, they will criticize. I am no one to Judge the things I have done. Yes, will analyse thing which I did, see the problem in the working style, but, I won’t wait for other’s reaction about my work, I won’t ask for their reactions either. There are two reasons to it, one I Don’t believe in talking and discussing the things which concerned about me, but not for the other. The other one, is If people won’t like it, they have full right to Criticize it, and it’s my choice whether, I have to accept their advice and Improve, else I should leave the work in which I can’t improve Perfection.
So, we all have imperfection. But, when we try to hide it with Pride, will always lead us to develop arrogance in the NATURE. So, Keep in mind that Arrogance does help you to gain things really fast at the start. But, we will lose people with time. Learn to Admit the Imperfection with PRIDE, we all can leave in Peace.
