Overconfident?

I like this picture of me very much and I feel that it connects with my content

I read somewhere, something related to knowledge and youth, when both embedded in one single person. In lots of the cases this person looks (is) judgemental, knows enough things to make him/her dangerous and something else that I honestly don’t remember…

Ok, so basically hhhmmm… this is me and I try to keep this side of me under control. I have been way worse, and when I look back at myself nearly a decade ago , “Bloody hell, was I dumb!” and it puts a smile on my face. “Was it really me?” “How could I be so silly?”.

I still am a judgmental creature. “I am surrounded by a bunch of morons. A horde of complete, incompetent idiots.” See, this what I am talking about.

Professional You vs Personal You

Some of you are cringing, I can tell. Some of you are “pffff“-ing thinking that they have all figured it out, as for example “I keep my personal, personal!” or “I keep my professional and my personal lives separate. Period.

In my article Authenticity Online, I write about the matching of our virtual personalities and the real ones, which extends also a little to the professional personality, as when colleagues are present in our social networks spaces, or sometimes the “boss” makes his/her appearance, knowing what we are up to.

Let me tell you what I think:

I smell trouble

“Hahahah forbidden? Really? You have never done something that is forbidden! You are a geek!”
That sunk for a moment. Have I? Haven’t I?

What I mean is that, it is not just the literal meaning of it. I stick to my principles, because I identify myself in them, because they make me who I am. Believe me, I have fought so many, countless battles with my demons  (and so many more waiting for me) to be who I am today and I was left  hurt with my soul bleeding, making choices that made me suffer of course but trading myself or my dignity, that was never an option.

This probably leads to less friends, probably no promotion. And love life? HA-HA what a joke!
But wouldn’t you rather have just a couple of friends that you know, they are not going to bail on you? That are going to be there for you, as you will be there for them, which also includes, saying some things that might also sting…. sometimes!
Wouldn’t you want to see your face in the mirror and feel pride, that everything you have achieved in your life, be it academic or work is your own merit, unless you are delusional and fill your mind with lies just to feel better. I wonder how much does this psychedelic illusion last?
Wouldn’t you prefer to be on your own, rather than become somebody’s emotional slave? Isn’t yourself enough, because you come first and yes there is a priority, YOU ARE! If you don’t feel ok with you, do you really expect others to?
So the question is: Is it really a matter to forbid or not?
What do you think?
