Center of the universe
"Here we are, born to be kings, We?re the princes of the universe, Here we belong, fighting to survive, In a world with the darkest powers, And here we are, we?re the princes of the universe" - Queen
Do you interrupt others questions with questions of your own that concern you? Do you interrupt in general before others have expressed all they have to say on a subject? Do you expect people to drop what they are doing right now to address your desires? You may be suffering from "Center of the universe syndrome." This common ailment is highly infectious, some people believe it has already infected everyone but them.
What can we do to stop this vile plague? Well first thing first is to assume you are infected. But don't worry, this is a treatable disease. Simply repeat the following whenever you feel an urge to thrust yourself to the center of attention "I am not the center of the universe, others have needs and desires as well." If this does not work, please come to me to let me slap some damn sense into you. *grins*
Yeah this is tongue in cheek (mostly), but unfortunately more and more people really are thinking of themselves as the center of the universe, both in and out of the lifestyle. We see it daily, people breaking in lines, not waiting their turns, in a hurry for no particular reason. We can fix this as a society and a culture, but it does require being an asshole and making people wait their turn. Tact and diplomacy sound great until you think the implications through.
This has been a public service announcement by Wyrd, all opinions included are mine, go get your own.
