You’re so self-centered!
That bit of personal criticism hit home hard because my friend was right. Usually, I am well aware of my flaws and sometimes don’t really care about them because they are mine and I have lived with them a long time.
And blogging does not help with the self-centeredness issue since even when Gray-Glo is not posting about himself, he is posting his opinions about some such thing or other.
So, I walked and talked with myself about it. I know, the irony is thick when you examine your self to check your self centeredness.
And what did Gray-Glo find? Well, yes, I am the center of my universe just as much as I hope you all are the center of your own universes.
But what about the flaw? –The Voice
The flaw is not realizing and concerning myself with all the others whose universes are actually revolving around each others including this self centered boob’s universe.
And that is what I think my pal was getting at. I don’t know for sure because I was afraid to ask so as to appear not as hung up on this as I was. It seemed to be something someone self-centered would ask. Sorta like, enough about me lets talk about me.
One vicious circle one makes when you revolve around your own universe.
What I forgot was so basic and simple that it is easy to forget.
One simple phrase or rule to keep in mind as you revolve around yourself and have others also revolving around themselves as you and they orbit each other:
If you want a friend, be a friend.
Mr. Gray-Glo knew this before, he just misplaced it.
And now that I have reminded myself (with a big ol’ slap upside me head courtesy of me friend) I find improvement in my relationships.
And it may not be too late to get one back into orbit again.
Thank you, friend.
