17. Agreed.

It isn't all bad.

Although I don't think healthy self-esteem and self-care are the same as "narcisissm" (and this point confuses some folks).

For example, if women who have historically been less assertive and less caring of themselves (i.e., caring about/for everyone else in the world before caring about/for themselves) come to a turning point and start to care about themselves as important people, all kinds of awful accusations start getting hurled around. ("Self centered", "selfish", "narcissistic", etc.)

Ask me how I know...




...on second thought, don't.

Don't even know if that makes any sense, I'm tired.
