THINKING TOO MUCH OF YOURSELF (NARCISSISM).
Only some people know where the words narcissist and narcissism came from. It’s important for us to know because the word’s history is relevant to social networks as such as these. It will give us perspective on ourselves and something to think about.
In Greek mythology (The other version), there was a man in ancient times called Narcissus. He was known to be so beautiful that any one who met him; man, woman or creature, they would stare and admire him because of his looks.
Many people would offer their romantic devotions to him but Narcissus would reject them all because he thought he was too good looking for them. One day he travelled but found a forest nymph named Echo. She tried to show her love for him, but like every one else, Narcissus rejected her too.
Some time after, Narcissus sat by a pool and saw his own reflection. He got so obsessed with his own handsome looks he felt sad that no one in the entire world would match his looks so he killed himself.
SELF OBSESSION IS NEVER GOOD.
