Finding the self importance side very hard.

My wife is on a bit of a high at the moment.

But I am finding it really tough, for the last week she has done nothing but talk about herself, what she is doing and how great she is, how wonderful her life.

Every now and then she will put in something like 'What do you want to do with your life?' but has absolutely no interest with the answer unless it involves something that will make her aspirations easier to achieve.

She is constantly wanting my praise for everything and is continually fishing for compliments.

Maybe it sounds stupid, but it is really draining and a huge amount of hard work.

She has showed absolutely no interest in anyone or anything but herself all this week (in fact it is a lot longer, but it is pretty extreme at the moment).

Sorry just having a rant, its a struggle to keep my cool at times.

My wife doesn't like her own company, although she would never admit that. She hates to be on her own, I like being on my own at times and being with just myself.

If SHE doesn't like her own company, what makes her think anyone ELSE would like her company?

They only do if they are almost kept outside, sometimes people who get close see the real person. Often family members and these people have been pushed away.

Oh and she thinks everyone else likes her, she always think men fancy her. Supposedly my brother did, his friend and my dad. Unfortunately she is probably a long way from the truth.

Also most of her ex boyfriends would supposedly take her back just like that. Yet having met a few, one was pretty sure that he never wanted contact with my wife again.

It is almost amusing how alike your wife and my husband are, my husband can't stand his own company either, however, he also hates everyone else even though he professes to love me... and my daughter. There is no love at all. I just put down my foot and stopped letting him pull my strings, refused to have coffee and chat. The reaction is huge, the "love" went out the door real quick and now I am even off his Facebook hehehe. Oh well.

But Toxic is right, the ego who can only be preoccupied by itself gets really annoying to the rest of us. Like Karras said, soon enough she will be enjoying her own company full time. However, these people tend to draw new victims rather quickly, they desperately need an audience and they will go to quite lengths to secure an audience. When we leave the auditorium, next seating is already in the works, trust in that.
