Destroying “The Superiority Complex” & Maintaining Self-Worth & Actualization
The Superiority Complex: I enjoy talking about myself and sharing the amazing project I am working on. I believe they are an important impact to society and everyone should know about it.
Destroying The Superiority Complex: allow yourself to be present in the moment without taking up too much space & causing others to feel suffocated by my presence. Being an active and engaged listener. Listen with the intent to understand and empathize with individuals.
When conversing with individuals, be intentional about not directing the conversation to myself. Avoid using “I” too much in conversations; use “you” more. Give space for others to share and also allow the silence in the room to be comforting.
Ready me for
Another day of battle,
Yearning to sometimes just get by.
Each day, I rise, swords honed.
Ready to face the externalities of life.
Poetry is like this
You can find love and love can’t find you
You can have a house and you can lose it in a blink of an eye
You can have happiness and happiness don’t have a hold of you
Sometimes you don’t have to experience pain and pain don’t have to experience you
