Why do people show off????
One of the most common root causes of our unhappiness is our desire to show off our assets. Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove. The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off. Here are the reasons why do people show off their asserts on social media?
Those who make no contributions to society show off with cars, motorcycles, credit cards, and other meaningless material possessions. We are now living in an era where capturing moments using our phones is more important than actually living these moments with whoever is beside us.
Those who show off do not shine!!! If we take a closer look at social media everyone has a perfect relationship. Success of relationships is now measured by the number of pictures you post each day. We have forgotten to enjoy the moment because we are busy bragging. We easily judge other people’s lives based on their profile pictures just because they didn’t upload travel photos, delicious fine dining and night outs.
Show off is equal to did you notice me!!!!
Others may say why not showing off if you have got something to show off but it is a disease which most people are suffering from. In most cases people have a low level of confidence that’s why they want a confirmation from others that how perfect their lives are. Many people hardly have likes on their pictures but they still have lots of friends in real life. Some couples are happy in real lives who have not declared their love on social media.
Beautiful memories never begin with photos it begins with the most interesting and important time spent together. Enjoy your moments with a person, not on-screen board. You will feel happier and healthier. Always remember when showing off you are only impressing people that have less than you. There are a lot of people who have more than you wondering why you are showing off your little asserts.
“I am here, please notice me”.
People show off because they feel that they aren’t being noticed or recognized. They believe that they didn’t get the attention they deserve and so they show off to send one clear message. Bruce Lee once said, “showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.” This means happy people don’t show off, they talk less, learn daily, help less fortunate, laugh more and ignore the nonsense.
Don’t show off !!!!!!!!! Also don’t pretend to be what you are not, instead, pretend to what you want to be, it is not pretense but it is a journey to self-realization.
