From listing my successful and unsuccessful years as a former middle school student, I now recognize how much my mind has strengthen since then. Middle school is a time where kids transition from children to teens and go through sorts of problems that teachers are unable to control due to a baloney policy implemented from the politically correct schools called “Zero Tolerance Policy” where many innocent kids are punished because they defended themselves against someone who was creating chaos in the first place. For example, bullying.
If I had the chance to redo middle school all over again, here is what I could do differently:
Middle School has some perks to it such as field trips and all, but if only there was another chance to make up for it due to my shyness which held me back for quite some time, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat and prove to our younger students that you should not be afraid to speak up when in doubt or if something serious bothers you.
If you had the chance to redo middle school all over again, what changes would you undergo?
Although I am not a psychologist, it takes common sense to recognize that we all tend to have a case of narcissism at one point or another. We may not intend to be that way or not notice it right away but there are certain individuals who carry that narcissism luggage from mild to extremely severe which is often times, noticeable through experience.
For example, a family member who lives in denial 100% of the time, claiming that they did nothing wrong while blaming as well as verbally, mentally and physically abusing others for their own wrongdoings. This is an extreme severe case of classic narcissism at best. They are well-known to paint themselves as victims when confronted with reality.
As for moderate narcissism, these people are between arrogant and victim playing. In other words, when you compliment them, they respond with “I know” instead of using polite manners. When you give them constructive criticism, they do not take it well and claim that they could never do anything wrong without blaming someone else.
A mild case of narcissism is when we all have a habit of talking about ourselves every once in a blue moon and not mean to come across as self-absorbed. This mild case is not meant to tear anyone down. It’s about how often we talk about ourselves and our accomplishments in which we rub in other people’s faces.
In the end, we all have narcissism because it’s what helps us boost our self-image and first impression to those we surround ourselves with. Those with a severe case cannot be helped unless they seek it first and recognize how much harm they are conflicting upon those they love whereas those with moderate and mild narcissism can change at an instant rate but it takes one to admit the damage they are causing and seek for help.
