We’re told to be self confident but not self centered. You have to be self assured but not overly so. Low self esteem is a sign of insecurity and that’s both pitiful and undesirable. It’s not all about you. It should sometimes be about you, but only just enough.
Why not be a narcosis? Why doesn’t the world revolve around you? If not you, than who? Aren’t you at the center of your life, your world? I suppose, you should consider others, but you are living your life and not theirs. So when’s it okay for it to be all about you?
For a while, I was getting the sneaking suspicion that everything was happening to me. It didn’t occur to me that my paranoia had temporarily blinded me from seeing that other people have issues too.
I needed a biopsy; my family member needed surgery.
My vehicle was out of commission for 2 days when my axle broke; my best friend’s parked car was wrecked by a hit and run driver.
I need to dedicate more time to my article writing to increase income; another friend just told me she might be getting laid off.
I almost made their issues into my problems. As if simply knowing me rubbed some of my bad karma onto them. There goes that narcissistic paranoia again.
