Narcissism:  extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type (Google.com)

Self-centeredness:  too interested in yourself and not caring about the needs or feelings of other people (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

Two words that pretty much mean the same thing, but at the same time, are slightly different.  

As of late, I’ve come across various people that seem to fit both, perfectly.

You know the ones, who only think of themselves, and feel only their lives matter.  They completely disregard others’ feelings and act entitled. 

They show zero support in something you’ve accomplished and yet expect you to support them regardless that they completely just dissed you. 

Never ask how you are feeling or what’s going on in your life, because it's apparent, that person just doesn’t care. 

I know we can all be selfish to a degree and its normal, but some people take it to the extreme.  And basically treat you as if you don't even exist, or more like they wish you didn't.  

All of this leads up to not wanting to be the bigger person anymore.  For whatever reasons why you choose not to rock the boat so to speak, do you ever get to a point where you've just had enough?  

Because biting one's tongue gets old and tiresome!
