I take them. You take them. We all take them.
We take them at parties. We take them on the beach. We take them at gatherings. We take them in front of the mirror. We put them on Instagram. We wait for comments. What do selfies tell us about ourselves? Often, I find people who are in need of approval. They are hoping someone will comment and tell them they are beautiful, or wonderful, or courageous, or that they made a great choice on their hair, makeup, attire, car, house, or pet purchase. Why do we need approval? Most of us are not being built up, encourage, and enabled to be strong and courageous. We are being ridiculed, torn down, and destroyed by a culture that is selfish rather than selfless as Jesus address. Our #MCM, #TBT and #FBF are all designed for us to post something that is already accepted or we have already decided upon and are confident. Our daily selfies tend to be like the girl who could not decide on a prom dress and wanted Facebook to decide. Only 13% of American women consider themselves pretty and only 28% of men think of themselves as handsome. 94% of men and 99% of women would change something about themselves.
Thank you media outlets. Thank you.
