Why Are You Proud of Being an Asshole?

It's harder to be nasty than it is to be nice.

Why Are You Proud of Being an Asshole?

There's been this new trend that I have seen circulating all forms of social media where people are suddenly proud of being a bitch, an asshole or whatever insult they choose to give themselves. This mentality tells others to "deal with it" if you have a problem with these problematic behaviors.

Seriously, I wish I was kidding.

Photos like these are ALWAYS being shared around Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and whatever other platforms that are used for photo sharing. I don't understand it at all.

Why would someone want to be a terrible person? Why would someone revel in the fact that they are mean and no one wants to be around them? This mentality is toxic, and I honestly hope that it fades away quickly, but I don't think it will.

Here's the thing; nobody ever likes everyone. Even the nicest people in the universe have their least favorite people that they'd rather not be around, even if it's for a vain reason. However, that doesn't give anyone the justification to be mean, awful or rude for no reason. What benefit does that present to anyone? Coming off as nasty isn't a great way to start or maintain any relationship whether it be a friend, family member, boyfriend/girlfriend/significant other, employer or professor.

If you take pride in being an asshole, you can't accept when you're wrong. You are incapable of holding yourself accountable for your own actions, and you are an incredibly self-centered person. If you're one of those people who "loves being a bitch" like your Instagram bio says, but yet you don't feel like this shoe fits, then you're probably not inherently a bitch, please stop making yourself look bad.

Sure, everyone has had a bad day where maybe they were being a bitch. But if you are one of these self-proclaimed assholes who feel the need to expose their character through a Facebook meme, I feel sorry for you. Being nice to people is an incredibly rewarding feeling, and who doesn't like when someone is nice to them? How can you expect someone to be nice to you when you're essentially walking around with a sticker on your forehead that says "I will not be nice"?

The funny thing is that the same people who are proud of their arrogance are the same people who will turn around and bash someone who was not nice to them, whining "what a bitch!" but, don't you take pride in being one yourself?

I honestly do not understand the mentality of wanting to be an asshole at all. Why anyone would take pride in having such a toxic attribute, I don't know. If you're one of these people and would be able to explain why you feel the need to live such a negative lifestyle, please, I'm listening.

And if you're one of these people who is probably rolling their eyes at this right now, I hope you have a really nice day!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
