"Asshole" and similar monickers simultaneously describe anything and nothing. It’s meant to serve as a defeatist blanket statement, the emotional equivalent of a fake doctor’s note to get out of gym: Instead of acknowledging where exactly your faults lie, and that they go hand in hand with positive traits as well, you default to this, so whenever it comes to taking responsibility for or dealing with any issue caused by aspects of your personality you go ahead and pull the asshole card, as if it was some unchangeable default state.
You have negative traits, as we all do, but you have the capacity to acknowledge them, and to work on them. Don’t dismiss the opportunity to improve yourself, and the lives of those you choose to interact with."
Thought this would be good to put on my page.
