Self-absorbed people are not new.
They just have many more tools now to get into our face and ears.
One person’s obsessive behavior rambling on about themselves can easily become a stress causing response in the person who suffers such one-sided relationships.
- Ask what would you lose if you step away from them – Be specific. Often the addiction to people who care only about themselves and their lives is made easier by asking exactly what you would lose if you ended the conversation.
- Cut contact – The more you let them know you are not available to listen to them talk incessantly about themselves, the sooner they will take it elsewhere.
- Find someone interested in you, too – Turn the previously wasted time of suffering from one-sided friendship and invest it in a person truly capable of being interested in your life.
