Sometimes, beauty is in simplicity


The image above shows a bench for sitting.

I felt it’s having an aesthetic look.

Do you show off, my friend?

These days respect is automatically given if one is showy.

Whether it’s in the matter of dress, overall appearance, being talkative, being rich etc.

“One of the most common root causes of our unhappiness is our desire to give people who will get to see the house we live in, and/or the car or cars we drive, an idea of how much we earn, earned, or were allowed to borrow.”

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Not much importance is given to simplicity.

Do you know that even simplicity has got a limit?

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler”

Albert Einstein

What is show off?

Cambridge Dictionary says Show off is

To behave in a way that is intended to attract attention or admiration, and that other people often find annoying

Why do people show off?

I don’t know.

May be insecurity?

I feel there is no need to show off.

“Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.”

Terry Pratchett

  1. It’s true that some people show off in order to gain attention or admiration from others, and it can often be seen as annoying or even shallow. Showing off can sometimes be a way for people to try to prove their worth or value, perhaps due to insecurity or a lack of self-esteem. However, it’s important to remember that true wealth and richness come from within, and it’s much more fulfilling to feel rich rather than just trying to look rich. It’s also important to recognize that simplicity can be a virtue, and that sometimes less is more. It’s important to find a balance and to be true to oneself, rather than constantly trying to impress or outdo others.


    1. I love your statement.
      “It’s also important to recognise that simplicity can be a virtue and that sometimes less is more.”
      How true!
      And social media is worsening the situation as people tend to compare themselves to others. (Show off tendency is more prevalent in certain social media platforms.)
      Thank you, friends.


  2. “Who is rich? One who is happy with what he has” (Ethics of Our Fathers)
    It is said that the truly rich can afford to be simplistic. In Terry Pratchett books there is a character, Lady Sybil, who is the wealthiest woman in the city, yet she dresses very modestly, lives frugally, and uses her wealth to establish and maintain a hospital for the needy.
    Those who show off do not generate respect; they attract attention which they crave because of their own inferiority complexes.
