Selfies

LOOKATME-600x600Selfies; they are everywhere.  Why do so many of us take selfies? How did this become a national phenomenon?  Selfies are hoping up everywhere throughout the world of social media. Selfies can be found of pimple faced middle schooler, or some of the most famous celebrities and of politician.

it’s fun to take some shots of yourself, especially if there’s no-one else to take a snap for you.  Love them or hate them, selfies are harmless fun — right? Maybe not. According to new research, selfies can say a lot about your personality, and not always in the right way.

With the growing use of social networks, everyone is more concerned with their appearance.  When we post a selfie for the world to see, we eagerly wait for the likes and comments to show up from friends and strangers. Sometimes immediately after posting, we stick around for a few minutes and rapidly refresh the page to see how quickly they start rolling in. Why? Because these likes and comments make us feel loved. After all, it was a picture of me, and of my face sometimes no one else.

We all want to be loved. We all want to be accepted, and we all want to matter. In a culture that is very focused on “self,” I’m not surprised that “selfies” have become so popular.  While it’s fun to take some shots of yourself, especially if there’s no-one else to take a snap for you, you can go too far with the selfies.  Above all, don’t become obsessed with documenting every step of your life – just enjoy your life instead. So if you need affirmation look no further, bring Christ into your life daily.
