Self-Indulgence

The self-absorbed cast themselves as victims to justify their self-indulgence ~ Alan Robert Neal

For some, living in that constant state of self-absorption, making everything solely about themselves eventually leads to discord within their circle of family and friends.  A deliciously decadent choice of shoe can easily become an occasion for self-indulgence in the way of bringing conversation back to themselves.

Even ‘walking on diamonds’ gives them an opportune moment to become the victim, to strut out a repertoire of indulgent complaints, demanding from us our full and undivided attention.

    And sometimes victims need compassion so that they can turn into survivors. I hope you find your peace, Grady. You are not alone in your struggle.
