    I've come to a realization today...I am extremely self absorbed...and it is damaging my relationships. I need to figure out a way to not be so selfish and think about myself so much, figure out a way to not have this "pity part for myself" attitude. Any body have any suggestions because I don't know how to break this behaviour cycle?

    Doing something to help others usually helps us to gain some perspective and distracts us from our own problems. Try volunteering. It will also help you to feel better about yourself.

    I used to feel the same way. I did all these things to try and make me a better person but it was all fake. I hadn't really changed.
    I stopped become so self absorbed when I began to work through my own issues. Then naturally I felt the need to become more open with others and more able to help and step outside of myself.
