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?

As always, please post a comment below if you want to share.

Take care

As always, I wish you well

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please check (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at:

Please continue to stay safe!
