Right from our childhood, we love to show and share our personal belonging to our elders, friends, and teachers. This gesture of sharing is natural and mostly a growing kid wants to impress others with one’s property. This habit grows up with all of us and we often control it in order to make our privacy. But many could not control this thing and situation aggravates in many cases.
Often, we find many examples in our society that people want to show their social status to others. For this they impress others with their branded dress, accessories and ride; it describes their background and seems accurate when moving in the same circle. But they are loud if moving in mediocre. Many of them obviously afford all this but there are also such examples who disguise themselves for any benefit or to deceive others.
Such differences and mismatches are often called the show off culture. Some people feel an inner satisfaction where they can tread over others. They try to generate inferiority complex in them and feel proud. They promote personal belongings as they are reachable to all classes and there is nothing abnormal. People influenced by this entire situation and it does not end here. It starts an endless race where mediocre or lower medium standard people also try to purchase such trendy and expensive things. Few of them do not care for right or wrong and want to achieve it all by hooks or crooks.
Another positive example is where people want to show their expertise to others so that they can be appreciated for their gifted talent. It is a natural way of expression and all noble societies love to buck up such skilled people. It also opens the new ways to promote such talent. Sometimes these brilliant minds grab the opportunity to monetize their skills.
These days, social media is full of such examples where one tried and being appreciated afterward. Now, there is also a category of show-offs, who know nothing but try to copy others and tag it at as their original work. Either it is a content, life hack or DIY, all being copied many times and all of them are not giving credit to actual mastermind. Copying anybody is not bad but for courtesy sake, we should tag the credit to originated person. This attitude will be much appreciated and increase your credit and viewers in a serious community, I bet.
I know these habits are hard to catch but one should try not to opt it. “Nip the evil in bud” we are our judge, our inner always pinches us on such nasty things but we often ignore it. Try to listen yourself and get rid of it in early age. If you delay, it will strengthen you. Being a show-off is apparently seems not much dangerous but it impacts a lot. Silently but aggressively it changes the structure of society and keeps the morality aside.
I have all this, if you have any suggestion, let me have the feedback. Your every word means a lot.
