Quote – “The Arrogance in being Different” – 6/17/2020

“Arrogance. The word, itself, is the seed to some lie, some delusion that people will easily consume. ‘For what makes the world fatter, is something that does not matter,’ could be a quote for an entire century.

Behold, what makes something large, like an ego, is what pertains to laziness. The person who says they are different, is not striving to better themselves, because they fear to somehow better someone else. Ernest Hemingway said, ‘There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man. True nobility is being superior to your former self.’ Yet, in their arrogance, through being different, they make themselves eclipsed from the rest, thus inevitably throwing them in the belief of being superior to someone else. Their fear in being unequal to someone else, is actually their liking to close off from those who dare criticize them. One can criticize difference, though one is unable to criticize someone who is the same.

Therefore, as Narcissist attracts Narcissist, a person of difference creates ‘the new sameness’. They first eclipse themselves from the rest, in being different, though will then state that their difference must be respected, without hesitation.

The arrogance in being different, is in saying that one’s difference is never the alike another, in sameness. One divides, through difference, in their arrogance and egotism. With egotism, a person believes themselves unable to lose, because they believe themselves worshiped by all. They make themselves the weakest, because of that belief.”
