    k.


    Arrogance is an inward directed emotion that exemplifies either a high sense of one's personal status or ego (i.e., leading to judgments of personality and character) or the specific mostly positive emotion that is a product of praise or independent self-reflection. Philosophers and social psychologists have noted that arrogance is a complex secondary emotion which requires the development of a sense of self and the mastery of relevant conceptual distinctions (e.g., that arrogance is distinct from happiness and joy) through language-based interaction with others.[1] Some social psychologists identify it as linked to a signal of high social status.[2] One definition of arrogance in the first sense comes from St. Augustine: "the love of one's own excellence".[3] In this sense, the opposite of arrogance is either humility or guilt; the latter in particular being a sense of one's own failure in contrast to Augustine's notion of excellence.

    I see this things all the time: teenagers talking about their first kiss, the first time they had sex, gf/bf troubles..."oh I'm too ugly to get a bf/gf" when they're actually not, the list goes on.

    What I want to say is please spare a thought for those who never had the same chances you did. Those who were too objectively ugly, diseased or disabled to have the same experiences.

    Spare a thought for people who've never had the chance to live life the same way you have.

    Thanks.
    LOL, you probably knock one out over "Bodyshock" and "Katie: My beautiful friends"

    Agreed to some extent. One of my friends lately said this to me 'you only value something before you get it and after you lose it.'
