Do you love taking selfies?
Does it indicate your love towards self ?
Or Do you think there is more to explore?
The most popular and the most loved word in today’s scenario. I too love to take selfies and around 2 to 3 selfies monthly or you can say weekly once , I post on social media.
What does it indicate ? Does it point that I love myself or my photograph being loved , liked or commented . Honestly speaking both .I do love myself .” I am my favorite” is my catch phrase and I do feel very happy whenever I receive likes , comments or other GIF’s on my selfie .
Yesterday while going through the craze for selfies , Mr Google provided me with shocking revelations . The various articles on various blogs or websites are presenting it as a new generation addiction , a disorder. Even certain sites went to the extent to present it as a symptom of psychiatric or mental syndrome. Here where’s my love for selfie got a jolt .
They say the scientific community all over the world come together and proposed that anything more than 3 to 5 selfies in a day may be considered as a disease even if we post or not post the social media. It was also suggested that more than 5 minutes per selfie or more than 30 mins per day may be considered as a disease. Haashh!!! I felt relieved, its around three to four a month.
Anyways this is about our external selfie which actually means a self portrait or image taken with a smart phone and which reveals our outside beauty , smile or laughter .
But have we ever thought about other aspect of selfie which means the image taken by self introspected vision and which doesn’t need any gadget , any smart phone or I- phone. It just needs your own deep understanding of your self being.
It is very well said by Socrates “Know Thyself”. Knowing thyself again doesn’t mean your favorite colour , your favourite song , your favourite food or your favourite blah blah blah. It actually means delving deeper into your internal core exploring your deepest fears, doubts, vulnerabilities, insecurities .The deepest reason behind your anger , your ego , your jealousy , your love , your passion , your zeal , your enthusiasm.
Believe me since around last one year , I have involved myself into it . I here don’t want to say I know myself wholly but yeah to an extent I am successful in exploring a part of me. The journey is on. But when I tried to find data about the percentage of people knowing thyself , trust me google left me empty handed or the data would be unavailable that how many people in a day , week , month or year know thyself .
With my just one year journey I can help I came to know that google is not going to help you to research yourself. It is you who has to google yourself and it is very well said by me while my way on journey
“ Not all the queries are answered by Google , sometimes we have to Google ourself to find our deepest selfies.”
So last but not the least I want to convey that
“Keep taking selfies , Keep creating Joyous moments , Keep cherishing your self being balancing your internal and external self equally.”
