The self-righteous will always be blindsided by all that life has to offer. They will never learn 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 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 put a different slant on things. When our thoughts have power and where we put our own slant on what’s being said, we are self-righteous.
Our lives are made up of irrational thoughts that have no basis when we have limited vision to see or think outside the box. But 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?
