Psychotherapist Carole Klein shares how a self-centered view decreases positive thinking and increases depression.
Well when we are centered on ourselves, it’s kind of a lonely place. All we’re thinking about is us and when we continually think about us it’s kind of like checking on ourselves all the time. We become obsessed with that and before we know it, we’re not really thinking about the other people in the world. We’re not in balance.
We’re not knowing that we are a member of a community of people living in the world and that we’re part of it and then it’s not all about us, and when it becomes all about us and we become very self-involved and self-centered, we then create all kinds of things that get us off balance in life and we have to put ourselves back in the mainstream of living to get a more realistic expectation of life.
