Actually, it's not all about 'me'

Picture a great-looking guy who is so into his looks that he falls in love with his own reflection when he stops to drink from a still pool of water. Transfixed by his sheer gorgeousness, he can’t move from the spot—and eventually withers away. A lovely daffodil—called a narcissus—sprouts where his body rests.

This ancient Greek legend of Narcissus is a cautionary tale that’s just as helpful and relevant today. The narcissism of this age wears many masks including ego, egotism, conceit, arrogance, vanity, self-love, self-absorption, sensuality, and personal sense.
