I Think Everyone Has Some Degree of Shallowness

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 167 People

    Shallowness Is Sanity.

    Religion, romance, philosophy, art... None of those things do much more than scratch the surface of the human mind, because under that surface there is nothing but an animal. A creature that is not evil nor good, but merely selfish. None of us are as deep as we think we are...

    Naturally

    We all have standards and expectations for ourselves and tend to snub those who don't hold themselves to the same bar. People who are intelligent tend to be unimpressed toward less intelligent people, the physically fit are put off by the unhealthy, rich people look down on the...

    It's Obscene

    Honestly, I Do!

    I am the first to admit, that a good looking guy can almost always get my attention! I do notice beauty on the outside and how! =p But, my shallowness is very small scale (or I like to believe so!) because being pretty isn't enough to KEEP my attention. If it were true, I...

    I See It In Myself, Unfortunately...

    March 22, 2011  While I'm far from beautiful, I don't spend a lot of time ranting over how little attention my plain-ness affords me. How can I complain, when I know that the same shallowness which no doubt contributes to others ignoring me lurks within my own mind as well...
