People call each other narcissists at the drop of a hat. I wonder if this was the word-of-the-day, or if we really have become more self-centered – it’s all about me!
I tend to think it’s both. What I notice is a marked disinterest in leaving a legacy that will benefit the generations that follow. People focus on what is good for them in the moment, rather than how future generations will be affected. Having Jupiter (the future) tied to the 8th house (legacy), this disturbs me to no end. To be shortsighted.
I remember when they came out with bumper stickers that read, “I’m Spending My Kid’s Inheritance”. You’re doing what? And you’re broadcasting it?
What do you think of people putting themselves first, above all others? I would like to hear from the younger people, in particular. What have you been taught along these lines?
