Encountering somebody who appears excessively proud of themselves is downright annoying, but have you ever caught yourself feeling smug?

If so, is there anybody or anything that brings it on and what do you do about it?

Recently my chef partner made terrible dumplings. The next day I made brilliant, big fluffy ones. I enjoyed being smug! But I was only teasing, not being awful smug. I think smug can be fun when it's in good humour.
I do, yes. I remind myself that some people might feel pretty smug watching some of the things I'm doing now, that I'll regret when I'm older and wiser.

A little mental slap goes a long way!
'Mental slap', good one.

I try not to be, but I'm sure theres times when it happens to everyone!
I'm not fond of people who always come across as smug, I try avoid them as best as I can.
Being smug is a human trait, and we have all done it for sure.

When I have done it.....I know straight away, and wow!
Big personal check in need!!!!
Like, ''what was I thinking''?
But, it is a trait we sometimes have to watch very carefully.
I think it happens when we are tired, I know it does with me.
When people get older: because they have done sooo much, that nothing surprises them really.
That also can cause me to be smug, I have to admit.
No excuse, but I just have keep checking myself....and try harder.
I'm sure I do sometimes, however cannot think of an instance now that I try to!

I think most of us would feel smug for some reason or other occasionally -I think it is part of life!

Smug. It's even an ugly word. I think, like meggf, that it can be fun . . but only at home. It is not a thing I admire out in the world and I would be waiting to be smacked down if I behaved smugly.
