LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Yes! And people also love to talk about the negative around themselves… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply They only love to say about themselves and not interested in others. I mean they are interested in only the negative in others and positive in themselves. Hit this…. https://amogha-varsha.com/2019/06/19/walk-the-talk-talk-the-walk/ LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Yes, some people are like that and I think it’s because they feel good about themselves when they can see bad things in others. LikeLike Reply Their achievements. People are always proud and confident of their achievements. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Yes, they are! And they expect to be applauded for those. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply EVERYTHING! LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Everything? Even the not so good parts? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply We have to take the bad with the good. Such is life, Sometimes we learn the most from the uncomfortable “bad” things we encounter. Finding a way to accept “everything”, even what we take away from the upsetting, unsettling parts is allows to learn, grow, evolve, and gain strength LikeLiked by 1 person …that they are tolerant and liberal…followed by a “but”….🤔 LikeLiked by 4 people Reply And the most important things come after that “but”. LikeLike Reply That depends so much on the individual. Some will brag about their achievements, others about what motivates them. Some only talk work or family. We probably learn as much about a person by what they don’t tell about themselves as we do from they share. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Totally agree. I also find it very interesting to notice what a person shares depending of the listener. It shows their level of comfort with that person. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It depends on the person and their state of mind. Some like to tell you only about the positive things in their lives. There are a number of reasons why they would do this. 1. It could be that they’re just a positive person and choose to have a positive outlook on life. These are some of the best people you could ever know. Their positivity is addictive and can help to inspire people to live better lives. 2. On the flip side there are people that exaggerate or blatantly lie about the good things in their lives. They are usually in a state of denial or depression and use this behaviour as a form of validation and seek approval by others. Some people only ever talk about the negative aspects of life. This gets annoying very quickly and usually steers conversations into areas that upset or frustrate others. While they may be good people at heart, I do my best to stay clear of this. They will disguise their behaviour as being a realist, but in fact they are more often than not, just plain unsatisfied with life. I am not a psychologist but I’ve met a lot of different people throughout my life, had many in-depth conversations, and have seen this in practice on many occasions. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Very true! Unfortunately, around me are mostly people that only talk about the negative aspects of life. I think it’s a cultural thing here in Romania.

LikeLike Reply During the last few years when I was in university, I noticed that 95% of people that I came across loved saying that their uni is very hard. Sort of a humble brag I guess. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Or they use it as an excuse for their results. LikeLike Reply People love to talk about how hard they’ve had it. LikeLiked by 4 people Reply Well, they want to be the heroes of their lives, right? LikeLike Reply Anything, so long as they are the topic of conversation. People love to talk about themselves and steer all conversation around their own ego. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Unfortunately that’s how conversations go… it’s just a turn-based game where people talk about themselves one at a time.

LikeLiked by 2 people Reply It’s interesting that people who had huge accomplishments don’t feel the need to talk about them so much compared to the people that have little accomplishments. At least; that’s what I noticed.

Like do people walk around with their invisible 3rd person’s perspective walking along with them? 🤷🏽♀️ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I guess they use it because that’s how they see it and they project that perspective into others.
