Wrap your head around that, this will stretch your neurons big time.
How can someone know something about themselves, and simply ignore this truth in favor of an illusion? Well, now that I write it this way, it doesn’t seem so ludicrous. People ignore plenty of facts, which you can smack into their faces as much as you want. They will not only ignore, but actively resist the truth of the facts in favor of the comfortable illusion. Don’t stop resisting, my dear delusional friends, it’s no fun smacking around truths when there’s no faces to meet them. Really, the more frustrated I seem, the more fun I am actually having. And I will offer you my face in turn, for you to smack your truths into. Really, the more annoyed I seem, the more I am enjoying the attention.
Oh, right. I don’t actually think I’m smarter than I know I am. It’s just that people seem to think that I believe myself a genius. I’m really just nutty as a fruit cake.
