Looking back now, I can see how I might have offended and alienated some of my friends because of my self-centeredness. You will agree me when I say that 60% of the time, we are unaware how daft, dumb, and selfish we are. It's usually in the form of good intention or harmless humor or "I will try this now I'm sure no one will notice." Self-deprecation as a front for compliment-fishing? Ugh. What about downright arrogance: I am so good at what I do! And then being met with silence? Friends are not ornaments. They're not.
