Self-love is not the same as arrogance or narcissism. In fact those who act as if they are better than others are often the ones lacking in self-love. Remember: lifting yourself up should never involve putting others down.
People who think they are perfect and go around putting others down, belittling them, trying to point out weaknesses and using it in a very negative way are narcissistic. It takes a HUGE EGO to knock someone else down and hurt them when you yourself are full of flaws. Leave people alone. What is the point of going out and purposely hurting others other than to get your ego boost. Typical narcissistic behavior.
this describes an insecure person or a narcissist or both. They are well known for exploiting other peoples weaknesses and insecurities and then playing on their emotions after they've hurt someone. They lack empathy, are rude, insensitive and are always looking for reasons to put others down, as if they are perfect themselves.
Trying to shame someone for their lifestyle, looks, weight, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc, etc. Doesn't make you a "tough b****" it just makes you puerile and ignorant. Better yourself instead of tearing others down to make yourself feel superior.
People who criticize and put others down are judgmental and hypocrites. People who try to point out your flaws or weaknesses in a very negative way are insecure and they put others down to lift themselves up and feel better. The things they criticize you for, are really their own weaknesses. They "mirror" or project their own insecurities onto others. Confident people don't go around trying to hurt others. They lift them up.....
Yet so many miss this point, and instead begin name calling and putting others down. Our society has a hypocritical way about it, and an alarming bullying mentality used to make others feel less than. It's very sad.
