😎 Most of us are snobs but also most of us fear snobbery.
Snobbery occurs when you take a relatively small aspect of someone else's life and judge it against your own position in that same area, placing a high significance on it. You then use that comparison to project a judgment on the entire person.
Snobbery reveals itself in anything you take personal pride in whether that be parenting, social life, fitness, career, health, or many others.
The world would be a much more polite place if everybody worked on developing awareness of their own snobbery.
2) Addictions rarely recognized...
🙈 We usually count addictions only when they're glaringly obvious and forget about the more deceptive ones.
A little digging brought up a few I suffer from but easily push aside or deny any significance.
Addiction to the approval of others.
Addiction to negative self-talk and self-doubt.
Addiction to consumption (food & entertainment).
Addiction to caffeine.
Addiction to drama and/or gossip.
Addiction is everywhere and just because it's not seen or identified publicly doesn't mean it doesn't affect you negatively. Everybody's different, what doesn't affect others might be hurting you.
What are all the addictions in your life? Do any of them have negative consequences you've unwittingly accepted?
3) 30-year-old "adult milestones" then and now
👪🏘️ This graph reveals the percentage of 30-year-olds (in the US) who hit the following "adult milestones".
Living on their own
Live with a child
Own a home
The data is compiled across five separate years, each a decade apart (1980, 1990, 2000...). Dark blue represents the oldest generation (1980) and yellow represents the newest 30-year-olds (2020). It's wild (but not surprising) that homeownership has dropped by nearly half (far right).
