We have all known people who can never get enough of anything. No matter how much you give them, it’s never enough. They always want more of everything. It doesn’t matter what it is, whether it’s material goods or everything of yourself, it’s never enough and they keep wanting more.
For the most part, these people are selfish and inconsiderate. Some dress it up so that they are always smiling and saying thank you, thank you, thank you but, the reality is, that they are only saying and doing as much as they think is necessary to keep you on their hook so that you’ll continue to feed their greed and selfishness and they can continue to take advantage of you.
These people are probably the most difficult people to walk away from and, you can stay on their hook for decades, even knowing how toxic they are. But, rest assured, they will always find someone else to take your place after you leave them because no one is irreplaceable and selfish and inconsiderate people will never exist in a vacuum; they will always find someone else to fill their needs.
One of the things I’ve noticed about these selfish and inconsiderate people is that they are never happy. They can have the occasional happy moment, but it passes by in such a quick flash that it’s as if it never happened. They are also the most negative people to be around because many of them have learned how to disguise it so well that, unless you are very sensitive to vibration, you won’t realize that your depression is coming from them because they are smiling and saying the right things.
But, not everyone who is selfish and inconsiderate has learned the trick of disguising their greed and negativity so they are easier to walk away from. It could still take you a few years to make the break but at least it’s easier than those who have learned how to cover it up.
Life is all about learning experiences. One of the most important lessons that I’ve learned is that no amount of counseling can change the true nature of a person. Those who have good acting skills can make it seem that they are making the kind of progress that keeps you trying harder and harder to help them turn their life around. The actuality is that nothing has changed, least of all, their real selves.
These people are no happier or better off than they were when you first met them and all your hard work counts for nothing. The only thing they take away from the years of counseling is that they have learned more effective ways of fooling people into getting what they want. My only advice is to cut that person out of your life as soon as you recognize the signs.
