What’s it all about?

16/09/2013

“It’s not all about you, you know!”

But it is.

It always is.

What else could it be about?

It’s all I know.

Should I pretend it’s all about you?

  1. I kinda’ thought it was all about “I” and we were all the same “I” anyway.

    • Well, yeah.

      But I’m talking from the ego here.
      And commenting on the myth of empathy.

      Haven’t you ever wanted to strangle someone who claimed to know how you feel?

      • I generally don’t get the urge to strangle people. I’m more of a puncher. 🙂

        It’s so rare for anyone to tell me they know how I feel that I can’t even think of an instance. Maybe it doesn’t bother me. I don’t know.

        Right. You are criticizing the ego. Is it a bit like the song by the Beatles, “I Me Mine”? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvDHwVM-PJI

    It’s all over in a second and you don’t get to see the slowly dawning horror in their eyes as their blood oxygen level falls away.
