A certain amount of self-centeredness is NECESSARY to survival. It is OK to want to take care of yourself. To put your interest before giving to others. If you don’t take care of yourself, like the stewardess says on a plane, if you are with a child and the oxygen mask falls down, put yours on first…so you CAN take care of the child.

Children are born having NEEDS and they put their own needs (naturally) first because they don’t know anything else. That is normal, natural self centeredness…i.e. narcissism is one way it can be termed, but that doesn’t mean anything “bad.” They do what ever they have to to get those needs met…cry, smile, goo, coo or throw a tantrum and that is what kids do until they learn empathy and caring for others, bonding to others..feeling good doing for others. Too much empathy or too little, either one is not a good thing in my opinion.
