@haileyhuber, I have had those thoughts before, but I try to see my judgment of another person’s perceived character as a reflection of me rather than them.
In other words, if I find myself feeling superior, I know it’s because I am trying to compensate for insecurity. If I were truly secure and “better” than them, would I need to put them down or even be bothered by what they choose to focus on? Probably not. We all have things to work on, and while your strength lies in “thinking deeply”, maybe one of those boy-obsessed cheerleaders is amazing at keeping things simple and never working themselves into an over-analytic frenzy. Who’s to say which is better or smarter?
