In brief: Keep a perspective

If you are that person's friend or family member, then you should probably make sure not to take it too personally -- their self-involvement is really more a story about them than about you.
If you are that person's therapist, then you should probably work to uncover the early-on psychological traumas that have created the problem to begin with.
