Wendy - that was all so well put and thoughtful. Like Mark, I ocassionally recoil at what I perceive to be self-absorption and selfishness. I can't seem to help interpreting events, occurences, and interactions in relation to myself and how I react or respond to them. My therapist thinks that my father is a narcissistic person who turns everything into something "about him, sometimes depersonalizing those around him." If I think of myself as doing the same thing, I can become pretty seriously self-critical because I so abhor this trait of my father's.

I'd like to think, more positively, that there is a difference. I think some of what goes on with me feeling so self-absorbed, is the natural result of engaging in therapy. I spend so much time analyzing things from my perspective. No one else's side of the story is ever aired, and my therapist mostly wants to hear about how I've reacted to an everyday occurence. So maybe therapy is a piece of this equation also.
