I believe self absorption in this day and age is something that most people partake in, whether they know it or not. When one is self absorbed they are preoccupied with themselves and exclude everything else. Many people think that their problems and needs are greater than those of others. Some of my friends will freak out if they have a huge zit on their face or when they have messy hair; when they’re some people that do not have a home or are starving. Our society seems so self absorbed because it is so easy for most people to get what they want, and they haven’t had to know real struggles in life like people in third world countries.
