Questions to ask yourself

I think it’s important to ask yourself a variety of questions about the person in your life who displays selfish and self-centered behaviors. A few questions to ask yourself may include

  • Is this person intentionally inconsiderate?
  • Are they stressed and overwhelmed and therefore unable to see how they are behaving?
  • Is this person typically this way or is this a new behavior?
  • Can I trust this person if they display this kind of behaviors?
  • Is this something they have tried to hide from me and now I am seeing?
  • Should I leave this person alone and find someone more capable of respecting who I am?
