THE TRUTH ABOUT VANITY***

DSC00078

Vanity: n. conceitad in one’s (appearance and/or abilities) and/or value

An excessive pride or conceit in one’s accomplishments and good looks is important for selfconfidence but if it is excessive and you begin to feel superior and think that the world revolves around you then vanity can begin to destroy your good reputation if you have one.

Vanity will make you become boastful and you will begin to minimize the important contributions of others. Humans around you may still interact with you if they are dependent on you to some extent but you will never get true admiration and respect from them and secretly most of them will think of you as an inflated narcissistic asshole.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HUMILIATION***

Your worst humiliation is only someone else's momentary entertainment._1313999199532

Humiliation: n. causing a human to sense shame and/or to decrease the pride of a human for duration

If someone has made you feel stupid, very embarrassed, or ashamed then you have been humiliated. The humiliation frequently does not last very long unless you have been humiliated in public and many humans will remember your humiliation and your reputation may suffer.

If you have behaved stupidly or badly but not in front of someone then humiliation is not an issue. The only time that we feel humiliation is if we know that our stupid or bad behavior has been witnessed by someone who disapproves and frequently tells us how stupid or bad they think it really was.

Parents sometimes humiliate us so that we feel bad enough so that we will not repeat the stupid or bad behavior again.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BOASTING***

boasting in weakness

Boast: v. to communicate excessive selfimportance and/or pride

Using superlatives to describe your accomplishments may sometimes seem like boasting but some humans actually do a great or superb job once in a while. What really separates the boaster from a truthful comment is the tone of voice which selfpraise is made and how frequently it is done. If you repeat selfpraise much then it can also be thought of as a sign of boasting.

“I manage 50 humans” may merely be a fact of life and not a boast unless the tone of voice is a boastful manner or you repeat the fact about three or more times in a short duration. “I always win” and “I am never wrong” may seem like a boast or a lie or both. Humility is frequently preferred by humans to boasting but a little boasting can also sometimes be considered to be a sign of selfconfidence so it is not always totally bad.

Evergreen truth blog may seem like boasting to some of you but I prefer to view it as a sign of somewhat excessive selfconfidence.

THE TRUTH ABOUT INCENTIVES***

Incentive: n. creating a motivating subset(s)

Pleasure, fear, pride, role models, money, status, and helping others are the primary incentives or motivating factors in human behavior(s). We generally do what gives us pleasure and do or don’t do something to avoid what we fear. We also generally want to be proud of the things which we do or achieve. We also are frequently incentivized to imitate successful role models even though the role models in our lives are not that successful.

We all like to feel important about ourselves and would like others to think highly of us so that motivates many to try and make enough money, have some status, and help others in our daily lives.

Much personal failure and social failure can be the result of addictive bad behaviors acquired in childhood from bad role models but acquiring bad addictive behaviors in adulthood can also lead to much personal and social failure. Crises in life are sometimes the incentives which are needed to change some of our bad addictive behaviors, especially if we are getting considerable satisfaction from them.

We should all be incentivized to be good and do good in society. Unfortunately moral decay is continuing and many don’t know what being moral really means any more.  Many are floundering in a moral vacuum which results in failed human relationships and dysfunctional lifestyles. Failing personal lives are reflected in failed leadership lives. The society is in decay and corruption is becoming rampant.

Humans need just purpose in their lives to give it meaning and only an updated secular morality can give it to them. Young impressionable lives should be indoctrinated in elementary school with a just morality which is- except in emergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

If you know what be good and do good in society means then you are probably morally sound and are leading a relatively successful life.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PRIDE

300px-pride_fc_logo

Pride: n. selfrespect and belief in one’s own (worth and/or ability) and/or (merit and/or superiority) and/or power to achieve a goal(s)

Being proud of your achievements is a largely instinctual emotion and being proud of your offspring or group achievements is an extension of your pride to other humans.

A desire to be proud is what motivates most of us to do good and sometimes great things in life. Without a rather selfish desire to be outstanding in something humans would cease to function efficiently since they would not be very motivated or good at setting goals and achieving them.

There is excessive pride which can sometimes repulse other humans but frequently a little over confidence in ourselves is what keeps us going even in the face of great failure or hard obstacles to overcome.

Nationalistic and group pride is a unifying force between humans but the drawback is that it breeds intolerance of other groups and cultures and is one of the major reasons why prejudice exists in this world and is an obstacle to world unity or commonality of purpose.
