Knowing everything Vs. Wanting to know more
Yes, some people just think they know it all, they have it all figured it out and they basially try to outshine every perspective of yours even if you state facts, JUST BECAUSE THAT PERSON HAS TO WIN.... or if you ask me, these people have an inflated sense of their own importance...in other words:
Narcissistic personality disorder
This is what happens a lot in this virtual community. G@G knows this, and it's challanging us, and admit it, we all like it don't we ... Wink Wink
Some of you will say " but they are just trolling " well, yes, this phenomenon of Trolling deserves a whole MyTake of its own, because if you ask me, it's getting out of hand and it's getting embarrising... I love having fun and many times i'm sarcastic myself, but never on earth would i "TROLL" as in "writing something out of context just to look "cool" because again. It's freaking embarrising. STOPET !!!
So what are we supposed to do you ask?
Well, how about you try to admit that you don't know everything...trust me, when people admit to their mistakes or lack of knowledge in something, that's the sexiest thing someone can do. Like , how about we stop GENERALIZING for starters...?
This whole MyTake inspired me based on a little chit chat I had with BoobMan and this is what he said:
I guess rather than ideal you could replace that with "constantly improve" or "work to better yourself." I think where a lot of the perpetually offended people fall off the beam is a mistaken belief that everything is subjective and therefore nothing is any better or worse than anything else. And of course, that's completely wrong. There ARE things that are better and there ARE things that are worse. And we know that because we're not all equally drawn to everything.
Pretty deep huh? Well BoobMan (Yes he loves boobs no secret here) has a massive point here. When it comes to self-improvement it does not involve being overly hard on yourself though, in fact it's quite the opposite.
Trust me, the more self-kindness the more self-compassion you can foster, the more equipped you will be to treat those around you the same way.
Oh and another extra deep tip: Doing good for others through simple words can give your life a deeper sense of meaning. It might even help to improve your physical and mental health. YOU wouldn't know without trying si try.... Like, don't you feel AMAZING when people actually THANK YOU for opening their eyes? Or for just giving them hope?
But rather than try to improve themselves and/or their situation by working at it, they find it easier to complain that the world isn't fair. - BoobMan
Sadly, complaining in well known situations such as different topics about "Gender Issues" especially on my last MyTakes when I tried to gather direct information of what Women really want or what Men really want. As much as I tried to PUMP the positivity in those Articles, many people yet decided to complain and also be 100% sure of their own facts.

I think the best way to improve yourself is through the following:
Cultivate Gratitude - keep a gratitude journal of what you're thankful, it can have a big effect on your mindset. Incorporating gratitude daily, can helop ward off stress, improve sleep and so on.
Digital Detox - UNPLUGGING, even if it's just for a small amount of time can be very beneficial to your well-being. The next time you are tented to check your messages or WHO replied to the last comment on G@G, try to step away from your phone for a few hours, and reflect, walk, distract yourself... you might even come back with more energy and have a bomb reply to some issue or debate.
Positive self-talk - You have to stop being overly harsh and critical of your perceived failings. HELL, WE ALL FAIL, some failed more than the other but this unproductive self-talk and self reminder can lower your overall motivation. YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE y'all HEAR ME?
Practice random acts of kindness - Being kind to others even virtually (without sounding like a creep of course -_-) can give you a sense of purpose and make you feel less isolated. In real life, you can just try to offer a coffee for your colleague, send a card to a friend or just a message on their phone, pay a compliment to a stranger why not?
You will notice your mood lift when you do good for the sheer joy of it trust me. Do this for one week and you will boost happiness and gratitude..
CLEAN HOME - This might sound weird, but the way you feel about your home and surroundings can influence whether your time there is restorative or stressful. All you need is 30 minutes a day, set a timer and tackle some quick household chores.
FORGIVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS - This is a very important point, when you hold on regret, pain, resentment you can hurt others indirectly. But it also hurts you... When you feel any of these emotions, it will affect your mood and how you treat everyone, especially yourself.
I don't think you want to be the cause to "make someone feel bad" , HARBORING UNFORGIVNESS BREADS NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
Decide to let it go and make a plan to never go to bed angry.
The bottom line - It's normal to get caught up in trying to become the best version of yourself... But being a better person starts with treating yourself with LOVE, when you treat yourself with LOVE you will be able to reason with people, you will be able to understand their perspective even if they are AGAINST YOUR OWN PERSONA AND YOUR NATURE...
BEWARE: You don't have to be sweet to people that highlight the fact of EXCUSING RAPE, MURDER, VIOLENCE AND SO ON ... ( I know you will come to me with this so I had to mention it )
Let me know if you think there is more to add here, if we can somehow improve ourselves and help others in different ways.
Oh and Ladies, don't be shy to slide in BoobMans Dms, also because he is a stunningly handsome, and an ideal man for any attractive woman! ( He said this not me, but see WHAT SELF LOVE ACTUALLY MEANS HE JUST GAVE US A DIRECT EXAMPLE LOL) ... Well thank you amigo, this MyTake was inspired by you and I hope it will reach people that need this, oh I also hope some nice Lady will actually slide in your DMs.
Ps. He's not a creep even though his Account name is idiotic.
Wish you all the best
