“Superiority Complex” meets “…ACTUALLY JUST RIGHT ALL THE TIME”
Lorde is a perfect example of someone who has been criticized for “dissing” many artists in the music industry, but in reality all she is doing is telling the bold, plain TRUTH.
“I’m a feminist and the theme of [Selena Gomez’s] song is, ‘’When you’re ready come and get it from me,'” Lorde explained. “I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”
Amen, Sistah!! Somehow, the media decided this was ‘slamming’ Gomez and demonized Lorde for being harsh. As a true Scorpio, Lorde is smart, honest, and to the point. No sugar coating and right on the money.
Often enough Scorpios get labelled as being harsh, critical, cruel, judgmental, spiteful, and bitchy. There are plenty of times this is true – when the Scorpio has decided it’s the perfect tactic for the moment. However the majority of the time Scorpios are interpreted very negatively when there is no conscious malice or spite. They purposefully state the honest bare truth, regardless of the feelings of the more sensitive. As far as they’re concerned, the truth has no interest in kindness nor compassion. The truth just IS. And you know what? They’re RIGHT.
There is a slight problem, however, in the forthcoming mentality that arises out of always being right regardless of how many friends you alienate– The Scorpio starts to KNOW they’re right. Once this inevitability hits, the respect one has for the Scorpio dwindles fast. Haughty, arrogant, petulant, or bullying, the self righteous Scorp scuttles into disastrous territory. Among the problems with this attitude, the most prominent include losing all your friends, and being ‘unteachable’.
1. Losing all your friends: It sucks, don’t do it. If you’re the Scorpio, learn what Loyalty means. Ask yourself whether you’re preaching your truth for another’s benefit, or yours. Are you worried you won’t be taken seriously if you don’t deliver scathing critiques all the time? How much is your Ego getting out of always being right? The best therapists withhold some truths until the patient is ready to hear them…
If you’re the Scorpio’s brave friend, you probably already know arrogance is one of their personality defects, and you love them all the same. If you find it too hard to deal with, keep in mind they have huge hearts and really do have the best intentions. Scorpios behave this way to gain self esteem foremost. If you are forgiving, they will return the favor with unwavering loyalty. And you KNOW they can verbally bitchslap your enemies. This comes in handy.
2. Being Unteachable: This has the worst repercussions to the Scorpio himself. If you find your Scorpio-self responding with “I know!” all the time, how are you supposed to grow and expand your knowledge and consciousness? How are you supposed to fulfill your divine birthright of being torn down in spiritual death, and then reborn anew into wisdom?
The moment you can look at yourself in the mirror and say “I don’t know” is the moment you can bet your ass you’re on the right path.
