I believe you have raisen some interesting points in heee. It made me think ..... is there an actual difference between self steem and sense of superiority or are they one and the same thing? I don't know, it is just that I feel that liking what you see in the miror can be a grewt thing while this sense of superiority perhaps can mean the inability to "walk in other people's shoes. What I do know is that I have definetely loved those quotes. Thank you!
fat folk are trying to be black swans, living well and in beauty no matter what society has to say about it. we are the unexpected change. you are that single black swan that disproves every assumption society has made and your existence changes the world. :
black swan theory:
Black swan events were introduced by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his 2001 book Fooled By Randomness, which concerned financial events. His 2007 book The Black Swan extended the metaphor to events outside of financial markets. Taleb regards almost all major scientific discoveries, historical events, and artistic accomplishments as "black swans"—undirected and unpredicted. He gives the rise of the Internet, the personal computer, World War I, dissolution of the Soviet Union, and the September 2001 attacks as examples of black swan events.
The phrase "black swan" derives from a Latin expression; its oldest known occurrence is the poet Juvenal's characterization of something being "rara avis in terris nigroque simillima cygno" ("a rare bird in the lands and very much like a black swan"; 6.165). In English, when the phrase was coined, the black swan was presumed not to exist. The importance of the metaphor lies in its analogy to the fragility of any system of thought. A set of conclusions is potentially undone once any of its fundamental postulates is disproved. In this case, the observation of a single black swan would be the undoing of the logic of any system of thought, as well as any reasoning that followed from that underlying logic.
