The Lost Art of Self Reflection

Buzzfeed published a video entitled , “If You Talked To People The Way You Talk To Yourself.” It’s a humorous (and naturally, explicit) portrayal of an imagined—also shocking—transition between our private moments of self deprecation to the world of placing that shame and guilt on other people. We’d never tell someone, “Your parents aren’t proud of you,” but we insist on thinking it about ourselves, even in spite of their assurances to the contrary.
