I’ve been working with a client who is self-centered. He focuses on his wants and his needs in any and all circumstances. This is a knee-jerk reaction.
He’s young and he’s very bright. He can see he has this tendency and how it’s causing problems in his life.
If a person automatically relates everything to themselves, to their feelings, to their experience, can they come to a point where they’ve had enough of all that?
Can they opt to expand their perspective and find interest in what their partner is experiencing or wants or needs?
Can they train themselves to override their natural tendency?
What do you think?
