“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”
– Lao Tzu
Over the past two years I’ve slowly descended into a massive cesspool of douchebaggery. Although I’ve done a lot of cool things that I’m proud of, I’ve also transformed into a shallow narcissist. I’m arrogant, not confident.
While being vain and egotistical is great for competitive sports and bedding club skanks, it will ruin your personal life in no time. At the moment I have virtually no friends, having repeatedly abandoned them in pursuit of women and partying. The number of times I’ve hung out with my real friends this summer could be counted on one hand. It’s something that I truly regret.
I’m also having a really hard time connecting with other people. “Normal” conversation bores me and I often catch myself looking down on those who don’t live exactly like me. I want to fix this.
This month’s challenge might not sound very exciting, but it’s essential to my growth as a person. I’ve grown sick of my “f*ck you got mine” mentality, and need to make a change. With that said, I’ll also need to be very cautious as to not degrade into a spineless pushover.
There’s a fine line between arrogance and confidence and I intend to find it.
