Have you ever met anyone who can “Dish it but not take It”? If you have, then you know the amount of caution that must be used when dealing with these types of people. Through experience, I have learned to cope with these individuals and befriend them as well. Now, how many of you have shown up these soft asses in a drinking game or actual sport? Then because they don’t know how to lose properly, they end up ruining your day or night? Yeah, I was guessing a lot of you would have had this same experience. Anyway, I wanted to write a post to address those people who make big things out of little things and ruin things for others. You know who you are. Learn from your flaws! Don’t run away from them! My generation desperately needs to learn to have thicker skin so they can become better people.
For those of you who cannot say or hear one thing bad about yourself without reacting negatively, we are onto you. If you are confused, let me help. Have any of you guys been to a party or function where there is a guy that passively pats himself on the back? This guy would say things like, “Hey Mike, Remember that time I carried the team in beer pong and you made that last cup at the end? That was dope!” It doesn’t take a genius to notice, through misdirection, this moron wants everyone to get the message that he carried the team on his back. I’ve also noticed most of these individuals are constantly chasing physique perfection (they go to the gym a lot) or directly telling others how great they are. They are hoping to receive more masculine respect through physical intimidation. For more than 2000 years, people have been using this technique and, for some reason, very few have called them out on it. For those of you who go to the gym for personal or true health reasons, I am not talking about you. Don’t worry, you’re chill. I go to the gym sometimes myself….
Are the people who deal with these people just supposed to keep their mouths shut? In my opinion, if you do, then you are just an enabler. These people will then be unaware of their effect on people, act like children and continue making the same mistakes going forward. I always believed that you must risk it for the biscuit. Some of you might not want to call these individuals out because you don’t want to hurt the relationship. If that is the case, then I understand. But personally, I like to be told when I’m fucking up. It doesn’t take a genius to notice that my peers have a better third-person perspective than me. They are the only people who know how to make me better as a person. I would be dumb to not listen to them to know my strengths but, more importantly, my weaknesses. Listen, all I am saying is that we all need to try and get better. If you are a grown man and/or woman getting hysterical when someone confronts you over your stupid shit…… Stop, you look dumb as hell. If you are the people who don’t want to speak up, well then I guess we will have to deal with these power complexes for another 2000 years.
