Illusions of Grandeur

I think I am more self-conscious than I used to be.
That is to say, I have become more self-absorbed.

Whereas before I could care less about what others thought of me, I became accustomed to being liked and even admired. As a result I have come to lose the very characteristics that produced those relationships in the first place. I have come to care greatly about what others think of me – and I have come to expect them to think highly of me.

Now, I've always been a shy person, but for the last half dozen years I've been able to hide that fairly well.
To be shy and arrogant, that's when the trouble truly begins.

    Ah, humility. It’s so overrated.
    To hell with it!

  2. So true.
    I guess I’m just having trouble adjusting to the fact that, dammit, I am better than everybody else.
