There is an unwritten rule of badass, and it makes sense. I think you’ll agree when you hear it.
The rule is…you can never proclaim you’re a badass. You can never say “I’m badass”. The second you make this statement, your badass resets and goes to 0.
Other people can say what they want. Some might say your lifestyle is badass. Some might think otherwise. It’s all relative anyway. Other people can say what they want.
Think about people or characters you think are badass. It would be corny if they themselves were to proclaim how awesome they were. It would be like they’re seeking validation or confirmation, which would in turn make trigger doubt to boil up in everyone listening and watching. Let us, the people, be in charge of those judgements!
If you’re a badass, we will know!
