Yes!!! This is so accurate! The lack of true caring and concern for someone's happiness and safety is unbelievable. It's always about the Emotional Vampire's WANTS/NEEDS! It's all about them... What they want, what they need, what they're trying to get from you, about the false image they are trying to portray, etc. Disgusting!
That's how it is, if you are there for people, they imagine you will always be waiting for them, when you have had enough of the one sided friendship and you stop making yourself available, all of a sudden they notice, by then you don't give a crap, you just wish you hadn't wasted time with a self centered ingrate.
We all have some insecurities in life but some people allow those insecurities to make them bitter and they decide that everything has to always be about "them". Don't spend too much time with self-centered people, because they just steal your joy! Mary Hamilton 2014
and no friends. Selfish is NOT LOVE or friendship. Selfish people are often stubborn. No I DO NOT LIKE self-centered people, I won't tolerate it from my kids. ONLY encourage them to be people who are good to OTHERS w/true friends by their side, sharing good times together, giving to each other!
