Self-absorbed Synonyms, Self-absorbed Antonyms | Thesaurus.com


Doesn't matter if the person is family, friend, co-worker, friend of a friend or someone who you bump in to once in a while.

How do you yourself handle these type of people?

Do you like talking to them?

Do you even bother with them?

I let them stay self-absorbed. By themselves.

Truth be told, I think the majority of people are self-absorbed. Empathy is a rare commodity, or so it seems......

I don't speak to them,MOST people who are that way don't have much going on,or they are not happy inside so they act like that. Waste of my time.

You must follow the Golden Rule. Treat others as you would want to be treated. You can't boost yourself at the expense of others.

I wouldn't have much to do with anyone like that, life is too short to deal with those kind of idiots.

I don't like too self-absorbed people. Like I know, there no more that self-sacrifice kind of people is alive on earth, and I would even admit I'm pretty much of an egoist myself (who isn't? it's nature), but I still do have morals and people I care about. I hate those mentally ill people who would only talk about themselves or try to find their own benefit in whatever they do. Everything has place to be but there's again - everything should have limits.
