For the record . . .

People who feel the need to assert how great they are at every opportunity, I've noticed, are doing so in lieu of actually being great.

Here's the thing, though: when you tell everybody about all the things you are all the time, without actually being those things, you're only really telling yourself. It's a masturbatory fantasy, and little else.

Also, this is not directed at any one person -- in fact, this is meant to be more of a test run, to see if public entries could ever conceivably be worth my time.

But if it strikes a chord in you somewhere, regardless of what that chord is, I just might be talking about you -- whether I know it or not.

Oh, god. I agree with this comment so hard.

Yeah... It's a fine line to walk when you need to do some amount of self-promotion, but still need to keep a realistic worldview. Sometimes the things you tell people are dreams of how you want to be that you're trying to make into reality though...
