I so don’t get how self-centered people are.  Truly and honestly!  It makes me incredibly sad, a bit angry too, but mostly just sad.  And when they demand and whine, I start to act like a cat backed into a corner.  A kitty in a corner is always a dangerous animal, they don’t care much about how others view their actions, they simply hiss and put out their claws and do whatever they can to get out of that corner.  I’m feeling cornered – I don’t like it.

Sad that people are so wrapped up in themselves, that they fail to see where someone else is emotionally and can’t take themselves out of their own heads to imagine how someone is dealing with their own reality.

I saw this little video linked below this weekend on Facebook and I hope that the people in my world will try and understand where I am.

Back off, stop demanding my attention, stop making me feel guilty for not being and doing what you need – right now, I’m doing for me, dealing with my own shit.

They may not be avoiding you

    I’m sorry you’re having to go through this. Hang in there. Too many people are self-centered and unable/unwilling to see the situation of others. Try not to let their failing hurt you too much.

    It is only when we are going through our own “shit” as you say that we realise that others seem self-centred … I think it is then the brave step that we take to look back at ourselves and make sure that we were not that way when we weren’t going through the “shit” that we are going through.

    We all need to be gentle with each other whether we are going through turmoil or (perceived) not because things are not always as they seem ~ And remember that because you are strong people can’t always see what you are going through and assume that you are doing OK with what is happening in your life.
