Me...me...me and only me...Let me tell you about me and what I did and what I want and think and feel...Listen to me...Be my audience...Don't have any wants and needs of your own...Just be here for me....Let me tell you about me exclusively and I will be your best friend...or the love of your life...Don't ask me to take turns or have to listen to you very often....It's sure draining to be around needy and self-centered people...Don't you think?

As gifts to their respective social circles, they have no concept of how draining they are. Their worlds are modern calliopes. It's no wonder I felt like puking on merry-go-rounds...

I have absolutely no patience for self-centered people. I had a co-worker once who was like this and I would literally shut down and stop communicating with her. It didn't even phase her that she was having a one-sided conversation as long as someone was her audience.

Best way to deal with them is to ignore, or constantly re-center the attention away from them. hold They will struggle and get uncomfortable and probably move onto another person to hold captive audience. Actually a guy I work with is like this - he will talk to you and never listen - if yuu say something complete disinterest comes into his face and then he says "I already know that" or look away, and keep going about himself. Usually I just laugh at him and wait for someone else to come along for him to try to hold captive.

Mom...Dad...Guess what I did today..Let me tell you what I learned in school or the new friend I made...Me...me...me...Let me be the absolute center of your universe and entire existence....WHEW...It's hard to be around people who expect me to act like their mom or dad all the time with no right to have a self or wants and needs of my own.

Oh, I just let my rude out, give them a little dismissive wave, and say, "But enough about you, dear. How 'bout those [insert name of sports team here]?"
