A Little Introspection Goes A Long Way

Examining once consciousness requires great skill. For those unwilling or unable to self reflect I, THE MIGHTY MAHARET, can offer you two very significant disorders to define within yourself.

Self Importance Disorder


*Excessively high regard for one's own importance or station; conceit.

*an inflated feeling of pride in your superiority to others ego, egotism

*an exaggerated opinion of your own importance egotism, swelled head

*conceitedness, vanity, conceit - the trait of being unduly vain and conceited; false pride

*superiority complex - an exaggerated estimate of your own value and importance" ~freedictionary.com

"A theory introduced to civilization in the form of Socrates, Unwarranted Self-Importance (USI) is the feeling that you are actually worth something despite not having made any contributions to anything at all, thus making yourself look like a complete twat." ~ encyclopedia dramatica

Let's take a look at another disorder:

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

"These people show an exaggerated sense of self importance preoccupied with receiving attention.

Individuals with this disorder have lack of empathy and so have difficulty recognizing feelings of others. They are generally uncomfortable until someone admires them (hmmm...interesting~Mich). Their exaggerated feelings and their fantasies of greatness, called grandiosity, create a number of negative attributes.

They tend to use or exploit others for their own interests. They become arrogant and aggressive when confronted with other people. Because they often fail to live up to their own expectations, they are frequently depressed." ~homeremediesforyou.com

What has that taught us today?

We all suffer from self importance disorder to varying degrees, yes even narcissism. What we do about our imagined self importance on the other hand is another story altogether. Realizing and acknowledging that you CHRONICALLY suffer from this disorder is only ONE step down the road to recovery.

Actually doing something about it would be the other the other step. Yes? Are you with me so far? Wonderful.

If you or anyone you know suffer from Self Importance Disorder and are unsure if the disorder actually fits in the long list of other rather offensive attributes you will know one of two ways (or possibly a few). You will slowly (or rapidly depending on your level of intelligence) begin to notice that you actually have no friends. That you're a complete social retard AND that your behavior has driven everyone away, including your family members and I'm not talking about Mom & Dad...they don't count. You know, cause they have no fucking choice.

Self Importance Disorder isn't grandstanding in the middle of a party for some attention. It isn't over exaggerating your thoughts, dreams or life events. No...Self Importance Disorder is actually believing, I mean ACTUALLY BELIEVING, that your status in life, your accomplishments mean more than the accomplishments of the hardworking individual who wasn't given SHIT on a silver platter. Who wasn't CARRIED their entire life emotionally or financially. That's called luck, the kind of luck that helps the rest of us losers win the lottery.

Chances are your parents were those hardworking individuals who struggled to get what they did in life in the hopes of providing you with a better one. Still, it's called LUCK. Well, either that or they climbed their supposed social ladder on the backs of others and no wonder you're such a loser. You can't help it.

The constant and very irritating urge to put people down to make yourself feel better than those around you is your biggest fucking clue. It's one of the most disgusting traits known to man and not realizing that your behavior reflects such a distasteful tendency is just pathetic.

I'm sharing this with you today because I've suffered from this disorder too and it's okay. As I said, we've all done it, we've all felt it and most of us are smart enough to realize that we aren't actually quite as important as our ego tried to make us feel. If you can come to that realization as well perhaps there is hope for you too.

If not, you should pretty much go fuck yourself. Yes? Agreed.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.
