It is strange, as if overnight, Facebook which was once a very cool way of keeping in touch with family or friends, both old and new, has turned into one big narcissistic cesspit of who tells the funnier joke or who's baby or cat makes the prettiest picture. Don't get me wrong, I like some of the stuff people posts and show my respect and yes it's true, I have never denied how big my ego is, but when some people cross the border of the narcissistic line, then they lose me, because that is one line my Libra soul will never let me cross. To totally ignore or ridicule someones work, because you are jealous of their talent I feel is just ignorant and I must have been off sick, the day they taught that lesson at the school of life
I do not just mean, my plight to sell my music, but I also see very talented people, with really cool stuff, getting next to no attention, but then others with very little talent getting lots, not because they are better or more talented, but because they occasionally flash a boob. Now, I like most men like to see the occasional boob and I think everyone deserves a shot, but when it goes ahead of very talented people, then I feel that is just not right.
This attitude of willing people to fail I cannot for the life of me comprehend.
My theory is: people are scared, because they know if a person succeeds it will only show up how tedious and boring their own life really are. It is better in their eyes not to swallow one's pride and go out into the open and give someone a compliment, because my friends then you have let your guard down and are open to attack from other narcissistic people, from your own kind, but.........
When did this become okay?
What made society and the norms of life become so narcissistic?
Can we ever redeem our respect or sanity?
Now, the first two questions I cannot give an honest answer, but the 3rd question I can and the answer to the question is: never.
Well, for 2 simple factors.
1. we have come too far down this narcissistic road and so most people in society are set in their ways and cannot or will not change and
2. Most will deny they are even this way and brush my views aside in their best narcissistic fashion because they have branded me strange.
I think a mirror is needed for each and every one of their souls because it's not me who is strange. I am being myself and because I do not follow the rules they think society should be, then I am strange.
I said most people, because luckily there are people, whom I know show nothing but respect to others and those people I will always cherish, but unfortunately for most of the narcissistic amongst the people I know, I think it's time to say 'Au revoir' I think 2018 should be a year of concentrating on the positive things and people in my life.
If you are reading this and it is affecting or annoying you, or you even think, what a lot of rubbish, then I suggest you read it again and maybe then it will dawn on you which road you are on
