Know-It-All’s

know it all2

A healthy rant is required for me to keep my sanity to tolerate the incessant amount of fucking know-it-all assholes I seem to encounter semi-regularly.

No, I’m definitely NOT one of these arrogant, puffed-up, chest-beating, blow-hards.

Why?

Because, I CAN be wrong. I CAN make mistakes. I CAN admit that. I CAN take feedback from others. I CAN accept others’ good ideas. I CAN concede that I just don’t know some things, sometimes. And, I CAN remove my head out of my own ass when necessary.

You see, I’m NOT a fucking know-it-all, and I definitely know that.

But, if YOU:

  • … think you’re always right.
  • … think your ideas are always the best ideas.
  • … think you’re always the most qualified, for fucking anything and everything.
  • … think you can always do things better than everyone else.
  • … think you’re always the smartest person in the room.

Then, you’re definitely NOT any of these things simply because you believe you are.

Your unawareness of the negative, long-term affects of your own self-aggrandization disqualifies you from even being close to the know-it-all-ness you proclaim and covet.

Sometimes, the greatest demonstration of knowledge is the admission of its absence.

So, to all of you arrogant, self-absorbed, self-indulgent, insensitive, socially-inept assholes who chronically suffer from diarrhea of the mouth >> congratulations, because you’re also always shoe-in’s for the shitty-listener-of-the-year award.

But alas, none of you are actually reading this right now because you already knew all of this shit anyway…

Taking Sides

half-full-half-empty

It’s refreshing to hear from people who are more positive than negative.

Who are more “can do” than “cannot” focused.

Who are more solution-seeking rather than problem-perpetuating.

It’s encouraging to see those who are more upbeat rather than downtrodden.

Those who embrace learning and growing more than stagnating and complaining.

Those who step-up and step out of their comfort zones to contribute at high levels.

Those who believe in others and want to give more than they take.

Those who don’t fear, but recognize the need for change, those who desire to shiFt the status quo rather than just shitting on it…

Yes, this is refreshing, and RARE unfortunately. I seek those who demonstrate the former of all the above. Sometimes it IS necessary to take sides.

  • But which side you CHOOSE is less important than what you DO now, and next.
  • It’s not about left or right, but about forward vs. backward…

Agree or disagree; just no apathy.
