Urban dictionary defines smarty pants as someone who displays intelligence in an annoying way.
Smarty pants can be a cleaned up way of calling a person a smart ass, it is not a compliment, and they are basically telling you that you’re too smart for your own good.
Maybe you put in the time at school or your profession showed amazing discipline and took risks and created an amazing life for yourself. People who haven’t got anything going on always have something negative to say but nothing to contribute.
People will criticize and be envious, but they themselves are not willing to necessarily put in the work. Keep on shining bright and being who you are. Don’t let low-level people upset you.
