I thought it helpful to elaborate further on this. Sadly, the self-righteous will always be blindsided by all that life offers. They will never learn anything about other people or other people’s lives, because they’re too focused on their own. Their life is about them.
Their holier than thou attitude, their moral superiority, taken from a sense that their beliefs and actions are of greater value than those of the average person stops them from learning about life, their lessons or understanding why they’re here.
When we engage in internal dialogue that we never examine or evaluate, we tend to become self-righteous. It is because we don’t examine, or evaluate what we think that we start to judge and react to people and situations, without consciously being aware of why and that makes us self-righteous.
When we don’t stop to question, why what’s being said is said, we will always choose to put a different slant on things. When our thoughts have power over our ability to intercept other people’s thinking and where we choose to put our own slant on what’s being said, we will unconsciously be self-righteous.
Our lives are made up of irrational thoughts that sometimes have no basis; particularly when we have limited vision to see or think outside the box. That said, even the self-righteous can recognise their self-righteous traits and work to overcome how they are.
It’s hard to conduct any relationship around people who sadly think they’re the ones who are right. After all, they’re self-righteous, how could they be wrong?
