Self-Centeredness

Get Self-CenteredThinking more than others about our own thoughts is not self-centeredness. It means that if asked what’s on our mind, we are less likely to mention being aware of the world around us, and more likely to mention our inner reflections.  Dr. Elaine N. Aron

Dr. Elaine Aron is a highly acclaimed author of many books dealing with Sensitivity. She is most noted for her work on The Highly Sensitive Person. She has done extensive research on the nature of our unique sensitivities and the impact they have on the various relationships we have in our lives, starting with ourselves.

Please let me be clear that self centeredness is not inherently selfish in a negative way, but to the contrary, it is quite positive. For, if I am not going to see me as the core of all my thoughts, feelings, resolutions, decisions, actions and more, who will. We have ascribed a negative connotation to self centeredness that it does not deserve.

As Dr. Aron writes in the above quote, I am more likely to reflect on me when asked about my thoughts than I am the rest of the world or about you. There was a time that I was led to believe that was wrong and I was shamed into believing I was selfish. I know today that if I am to have any capacity to give to others I must first know what it is that I have to give to myself so I may share it with you.

As a Rabbi and Spiritual Counselor, I help remind people daily that they are the most important person they know. I help them see how often we do not put our own needs right at the top of the list and on many days we do not even make the list.

My prayer for you today is that you enjoy making you the center of your thinking and find your value in you so you may brighten someone else’s life with your specialness.

I am a modern and independent South Florida Sober Rabbi with an MSW Degree and 23+ years of sobriety providing Sober Coaching and Addiction/Spiritual Counseling focusing on energizing, affirming, motivating, healing, spiritual guidance and personalized life cycle events.
