How can you get your SO/BF/hus. to focus on someone other than themselves? Whenever I need some support he turns every conversation to being about him. I guess he's either a narcicist or needy. What does it mean when they do this?How can they see beyond themselves?
I try to be specific like say,. "I need empathy" and use words like "I feel" this or that, not to do with him, but ME, like say, there is a difficult co- worker and it's hard working with her and I say to him, she upsets me, and he will turn it all around like it's about him.Then when he meets her he will say, so and so is a really nice lady. Like he doesn't digest he's married to ME and I'm having difficulties with this person and he forgot that right away.I don't even know what to say to him, look she's causing me problems.......he's just blank.
I don't know what to do. How can I make it better?
