Why are we told the world does not revolve around us?

Shannon Maher, 22

“The world doesn’t revolve around you!”
But it does. We are at the centre of our own world, so therefor it does revolve around us. It is only when we forget that the world also revolves around other people that issues arise. That some people believe themselves to be more important than others. This mindset breeds arrogance and ignorance. We need to be able to view the world from other people’s perspectives, but remember that we still matter just as much. No one belongs on a pedestal.
