Becoming less self absorbed is a best way to keep mind and heart clean. A person who is self-absorbed takes him or herself extremely seriously. They value their own time – but no one else’s. They are usually quite selfish with their time, love, and money, in addition to lacking compassion for those less fortunate.
Self-absorbed people are arrogant and often treat others as instruments or objects to get something they want. They usually see only one point of view – their own. They are right, and everyone else is wrong, unless, of course, you agree with them.
People who are self-absorbed can be rude, insensitive to the feelings of others, and primarily interested in themselves – their own wants, needs, and desires.
Being self-absorbed is an ugly human quality. Beyond that, being self-absorbed is highly stressful – everything bothers or frustrates them. It seems that nothing is ever good enough.
Self-absorbed people often have very poor learning curves. Since they don’t listen well and aren’t interested in other people, they don’t have the advantage of learning from them.
Become less self absorbed!
