Being/Not Being A Self-Righteous Bastard

All my life I’ve sought to be a ‘righteous person’, only all too often to be a ‘self-righteous bastard’. For someone as combative, dominating and intimidating as me, the quest to ‘be right’ and ‘do right’, regardless of the consequences, means I have done a lot of damage. These days instead of focusing on righteousness in myself, I focus on righteousness in others, for others and with others. And it is working out a lot better for everybody.
