The trick is to be civil but never offer the attention the self-absorbed person craves.It works by limiting your words to bland, noncommittal comments with them.So, when a selfish person asks you for too many favors don’t give in and let her walk all over you.Assert yourself and make it clear that you don’t appreciate being made to feel as if you are not important or as if you are of a lower status.They can have moments of generosity and charm, but for the most part, they simply lack the skill or willingness to be thoughtful and considerate.
For example, if there is any discomfort in your physical appearance, head to the barber or boutique and improve it.
A self-absorbed person may be so caught up in herself that she forgets to consider your thoughts or feelings.
She might just need a little reminder that the world does not revolve around her.
Yet others can talk for hours about themselves, making you feel like you are of lesser importance.
These selfish people love the idea of all for one—only when that is them.
