I Am a Self Absorbed Person

22 Jun

Living Under a RockIt just occurred to me that I may have been living under a rock for 30+ years. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least. In fact it’s probably pretty darn comfortable under the proverbial rock. For some reason I just learned that I am a self-absorbed person. Sounds wretched doesn’t it? There are times that I can be totally oblivious to things around me such as what others are doing, what others are thinking and feeling, the list can go on.

Today I am on a mission to figure out if being self absorbed is a good or bad thing.

It’s good to connect and really know yourself. However, if one is too absorbed in themselves that they miss key issues and feelings of those around them, then it can definitely be a very bad thing. If your spouse, children or other family members continuously take a back seat to your “me, myself and I”, you are truly setting yourself up for disaster.

OK, I’ll admit it. My name is Becki and I’m self absorbed.

I am going to do my best to take in things around me and just “check in” with myself. By checking in, I’m going to be sure that I am still being taken care of, but I will also place more effort on seeing things around me.

    I am studying to become a life-coach & in my reading everytime I read something as fantastic as this article I simply reply with WoW!

    And if there is a (Wow) in my notes as I read my books then it is something that really resonates in me & I want to recall it again.

    As a manager; I realized that I had some issues that needed to be brought to center and faced — well this article opened a new chapter in my journey and gave me the name of that something which I felt was challenging my growth (personally & professionally).

    Great find!

    Thanks much

    You are the last person on earth I would describe as self absorbed.
