Let me take a selfie first……….
People look great; they receive ‘likes’ on Facebook and Instagram. ‘Selfitis’, the narcissists, addicted to the cultural habit of taking an overabundance of photos of themselves, post them on social media sites, not once but every day.
They are always antsy to check friends tell them how beautiful they’re. A day or two later, there is another photo of themselves on their page. It may be a photo showing off a new haircut/outfit or pose in a glamor shot.
Wasn’t one photo sufficient? How many times can people tell someone they’re beautiful? And why should men post their photos where everyone commented on how handsome they’re? Why do people need validation every day?
Why base their self-worth on their appearance? Why all this fishing for compliments? Why not post photos holding up a fish they caught, sharing photos of a cold drink, riding a bike, post some’ affiliation selfies’ to highlight affiliation with people. Selfies taken could highlight a landscape, activity, or event, or collages of multiple selfies.
