Last night I watched Criminal Minds.
I love that show!
But, the show was about a selfie killer.
Reid said something interesting.
There have been studies showing that selfies are linked to mental illness.
I had a thought.
I am gonna have to look that one up.
And it's true.
Check it out~
A few months back, I went to a funeral and the pastor said that "Selfies are selfish".
They seem a bit self-absorbed, but I wouldn't quite go to selfish.
The occasional selfie is understandable, but the need to continually take them seems a little over the top.
Or, one could say needy, sad, or the rather harsh mentally ill.
The article states a lot of selfie takers have BDD or body dysmorphic disorder.
I know a lot of people that seem to just want attention.
"You look hot!"
"Oooh, you're sick. Sads."
That is another thing.
Why does anyone take a picture of themselves when they are sick?
I don't get it.
Maybe that is the mentally ill part of all of it.
Selfies need rules.
If no one is available to take your picture, a selfie is OK.
If you are sick or making a duckface, a selfie is NOT OK.
If it is a once in a while thing, a selfie is OK.
If you just took a selfie in the last hour or two AND posted it, posting another selfie is NOT OK.
And for the love of all that's holy, do not selfie while eating food. That is never OK.
