Can a person be both unaware of what they are doing and self-absorbed at the same time? Or does being self-absorbed make you unaware?
-My lovely slamming neighbor at home. Is she too busy thinking about things she needs to do and things she wishes were different (like living in a house instead of a condo) that she doesn’t realize she’s slamming every single door and drawer she closes?
-My lovely nail clicking on the desk neighbor at work. For about 3 weeks now she’s been drumming/clicking her nails loudly on the desk, constantly. Finally, yesterday I said something to her when we were both standing at the copy machine and she started doing it. She laughed…so apparently she thinks its funny and she’s still doing it. She’s in her 40’s and I swear she acts about 14 sometimes.
Maybe I shouldn’t waste energy on trying to figure some people out and just try to work on not letting these things bother me…because, if I let them, they will drive me to the point of insanity! It’s either my emotions running away from me or me being a Highly Sensitive Person (especially when it comes to sounds) or both. 5 years ago
