It might sound offending to most of us but as a matter of fact it is the truth and the truth usually hurts. Have you ever notice that almost many of us likes or indirectly comparing / competing? There are many good examples in our daily life that we can relate this with. For an instance, Facebook, Blogging and family / friends’ social gathering. You are bound to hear people boasts on what they owned, bought, achieved and some even what others do.
i have recently encountered a situation of a very close friend of mine, whom her family and relations are professionals and there goes the comparison starts.. A mixture of bittersweet symphony all together. The atmosphere was fillled with self-praises and admiration basically. Well, i am not too suprise myself, as i do compare and have relatives of this kind too. :D
Throughout their conversations, i am thinking to myself as to why people compare? Don’t they feel bad or compasionate for those who don’t even have the luxuries they own sitting there with them hearing on what they have to brag about? (ahem, that.. actually referring to me :D LOL!) It seems to me that they got a little bit carried away and are constantly seeking to get recognition from everyone. i just smile and said to myself, why don’t they make it big to the Hollywood screen or Noble award or something?
Well, indeed the Maslow Heirarchy of needs does says that Self-Esteem being the 2nd top most of all human needs. Question, do they need it till the extent? Hmm, i wonder? Anyway, just would like to add a note to it (as general rule) on what i feel about us, human beings. Good times, we boasts. Bad times, we become humble, so all of a sudden (Objective: to have other’s sympahty and to avoid helping others). Try it for yourself, i bet there will be at least 80% truth in it.
my appologies for posting a contradiction today but i feel that there should be a limit in everything we do. Don’t you feel? xOxO
