Sharp - Self righteousness

“Self righteousness is a display or state of moral arrogance; the quality of someone who believes himself or herself to be morally (and, oftentimes, intellectually) superior to either a single individual or a group of individuals.” (Urban Dictionary)


I think that self-righteousness is often more subtle and so “normal” to us that we fail to notice it in the rapid critical thoughts that are firing in the inner circus. What we spot as self-righteousness in others is accurate, right on, and necessary truth when we are doing it.


How self-righteous are you? How self-righteous am I?
