Humble pie

Posted on: September 11, 2019

I detest people who put others down in order to lift themselves up. They do so because they are insecure about themselves.

Such people might seek reputation and will not hesitate to name drop. Perhaps they think that they will get someone else’s glory by association. It is important to know good people, but it is more important to be a good person and build your own self worth.

Others might seek status by artificially putting their counterparts down. Perhaps they think that their age or position automatically gives them authority. But as I pointed out yesterday, authority is not a sign of expertise.

These insecure folk are also not self-aware. This means they do not know that they rub people the wrong way nor know why people prefer not to work with them.
 

 
The tonic for dealing with this condition is regular doses of humble pie. The problem is that they do not know what it is or do not like its taste.
