Selfishness: 10 Ways To Overcome These Negative Personalities

Selfishness is offensive. It displays lack of care for others.

Would you know how to overcome a selfish person?

Do you let them see they are annoying you or do you walk away and internalize everything?

It is important to understand how to handle them in everyday life.

In this article, I discuss 10 ways to overcome selfish people.

Selfishness can be characterized as narcissism. I think it’s important to understand the behavioral characteristics of selfishness. When you understand it you are better able to address it.  In the following video, I further discuss this concept.

Understanding self-centered behaviors


Questions to ask yourself

I think it’s important to ask yourself a variety of questions about the person in your life who displays selfish and self-centered behaviors. A few questions to ask yourself may include

  • Is this person intentionally inconsiderate?
  • Are they stressed and overwhelmed and therefore unable to see how they are behaving?
  • Is this person typically this way or is this a new behavior?
  • Can I trust this person if they display this kind of behaviors?
  • Is this something they have tried to hide from me and now I am seeing?
  • Should I leave this person alone and find someone more capable of respecting who I am?


What has been your experience with this topic? Do you know someone who shows similar behaviors?

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
