Oh, the ever loving Selfie

Scientists Link Selfies To Narcissism, 

Addiction & Mental Illness


What do you think about this?


While you are pondering this, 
here are a few selfies of me.






Here is what I think of the whole selfie thing:

I am not a narcissist. 
I despise those who are. 

Yes, I am addicted to social media.
But I am lonely and it occupies my time.

No, I am not addicted to posting selfies
by no means, but I do like that I am 
beginning to like certain things about me.

Yes, I do have to take several pictures at a time
in order for me to find ones I like.

And yes I suffer from a mental illness, 
but it has nothing to do with me taking selfies.

I do love attention, but when I post my selfie
I do not do it with the hopes or intention of
getting likes and comments.
I do it just because I can.
I am finally getting a little more 
comfortable at seeing myself in print.
I grew up hating having my picture taken.
I hated seeing myself.
I thought I was so ugly.
I am no way near 100% comfortable 
in my own skin (hence the fact I only
do head shots) but I am working on it.

Of course I understand that some 
people can take selfies to the extreme. 
 I am sorry it causes problems for some.

We all have our reasons why 
we do the things we do.
Honestly, I think that the professionals
have blown the whole selfie thing out of control.
But it is what it is.
