Mordern Mirrors

People have always had the habit of admiring their beauty in mirrors. Earlier fashionable mirrors were used for this purpose. But now we have ‘selfies‘. Selfies are nothing but self-images. People are obsessed with taking the perfect selfie. 

A selfie has been defined as ‘the obsessive compulsive desire to take photo of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the back of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy’. 

It is categorised into three levels- borderline, acute and chronic. Selfies are actually clicked for self- satisfaction. People crave for ‘likes’ and comments rather than real admiration. 

Work to minimise your social media presence. Take in the best of life’s moments without the need to seek approval or commentary from others. Live your own life- don’t live before the eyes of others.
