You’ve learned something important, though potentially disheartening about a certain class of people.
When Linda Hamilton was divorcing James Cameron she reported that he had said to her at one point that he frankly admitted that he wasn’t a particularly good husband or father, saying, “There are millions of guys who can be good husbands or fathers — but only a handful of men in the world who can direct one of the biggest hit movies of all time.”
Guys like this are totally focused on one thing — themselves. If you’re Jim Cameron there really is just one thing in the world. Jim Cameron.
If you’re someone who wants to be a Big Star then you see everyone and everything in the world through the lens of ME. Spouses, children, other people, causes, the orbit of the earth around the sun, the decay of radioactive materials. Everything is really just about Me.

It’s easy for me to relate, for I am that guy with only the lens of ME.
