I have been called self-absorbed yet again. This time, by someone very dear to me. What is it about me that make people want to throw that kind of accusation at my face every so often?
I asked that someone to elaborate and here’s what I got; I am a human being that doesn’t really care about what goes on with other people. If anyone talks to me about something, I would always somehow manage to make it all about myself. As far as I’m concerned, life is all about Me, Me, and Me, nobody else matters.
Really, ah? That's me? I didn’t realize that.
Let’s see. In my last posting, I wrote something in conjunction with Father’s Day, so it was supposedly for my father, but I ended up talking about myself the entire time. HOW SELF-ABSORBED IS THAT?
Okay, okay. I get it. I am self-absorbed. Say whatever you want.
A quick check on the net shows that a self-absorbed person is one who does things “primarily for his/her own benefit, puts his/her feelings first, can't do anything when he/she doesn't feel good, swayed by his/her emotions, more concerned with himself/herself than others, prefers personal glory over team victories, pleasure seeker, uses his/her looks to get what he/she want, gets angry when he/she doesn't get what he/she wants, dramatizes his/her suffering, wealth seeking, superficial, manipulative and narcissistic”.
WHAT? That is so untrue. I’m pretty sure I don’t use my looks to get what I want.
On the flip side, it’s good that I’m self-absorbed. Because if I’m not, I wouldn’t care if someone thinks I don’t give a damn. As it is, I care about people thinking I don’t care so I try to care about things that need caring and hope that people care to notice that I do care, even if I only care about it in order to get you to start thinking that I care. Am I making sense?
Maybe after I finish talking about myself in this blog and in other blogs, I’ll start thinking about how to make Me, Me, and Me a better and more caring human being. And after that, I’ll talk for about an hour about how caring I really am.
Till then. Take care!
