Flaunt Philosophy

What is the idea behind Flunting  ? Image source Google

via Daily Prompt: Flaunt

Is flaunting good or bad ?

How flaunting is enacted by humans and other Gods creations ?

It is said that various creatures of God flaunt the beauty in their body to attract mates .That is perfectly OK.

But in humans ?

Whatever you flaunt…..it is a bit depressing to others,since human brain always carves for something better and others may feel inferior , leading  to jealousy  and totally destroying the inner peace.

Instead I feel one should be modest.

Remember flaunting attracts more enemies than friends.
