Narcissistic behavior

People talk about themselves all the time. Directly or indirectly, they usually have the intention to promote their views, opinions, or increase their self-esteem. I’m wondering now if I’m too radical when I say that I do bother about this behavior…

Sometimes I can’t stand being close to someone who is a narcissist. However, what really pisses me off is talking to someone who pretends not to be a narcissist! This is absurdly annoying. They frequently talk about themselves, mentioning their freaking achievements, secretly waiting for other people to admire them, but they also like to say that they are not so good as they wanted, or that they should give more value to what they do, and so on…

Oh, man. Really? Can’t you just stop appraising yourself externally, and start doing this internally, which is by far the most important thing to do? Can’t you just be a nice guy/girl and stop talking about yourself like you were in a freaking presentation?

On the other hand, I understand that this kind of people probably have some serious internal issues (who doesn’t, huh?), and they probably want everyone to pay attention to them as much as possible. We’ve got to be patient with them, understand their problem, and maybe try to help (how??). But sometimes it’s just too hard to do that.

New year’s resolution? Nah, I don’t think so…
