We live in a selfie society. At no time in human history has there been a culture which spent so much time, energy, and money on getting people to look at ourselves. People live ‘look-at-me’ lives, and measure their lives by how many follows and likes they get for themselves. But selfie-centeredness has not produce self-satisfaction. One scientific study found that the “culture of selfie taking in some cases has resulted in some forms of obsession with self (narcissism), low self-esteem, depression and its’ associated suicidal ideations, Body Dysmorphic Disorder and even actual deaths.”
How do we stop selfie-centeredness? Let’s ask the least self-centered man that ever lived (apart from Jesus), John the Baptist.
