Self-Centered

I am constantly apologizing for being self-centered.  Every time I link to this blog (which has only really been what? Two times?) I feel like I should apologize for asking people to look at it.

That’s silly.

I’m writing a blog.  That’s totally a thing people do, and linking to it is also a thing that people do and not a desperate cry for praise and attention.  I’m mostly writing because I wanted to write more.  So I will link to it, and if people want to click on the links they can and if they don’t they don’t have to.  It really is as easy as that.

I don’t actually remember if I ever was self-centered.  I know one of my childhood friends used to tell me I was all the time, but I think that had more to do with her than with me.  My horrible high school boyfriend used my supposed selfishness as one of the many weapons in his manipulation arsenal–I was so selfish, so self-centered, couldn’t I see how I was hurting him?  I may actually even be a little bit…but I’m pretty sure I’m not anywhere near as bad as I think I am, if that makes sense.  I mean, I’m an only child who loves performing and actually, seriously has an attention fetish…but I’m done apologizing.
