The Purpose of A Selfie

I was watching The Kardashians this week and Kim kept taking selfies while she was on vacation in Thailand and for some reason it almost "normalized" her to me.  I mean we all take selfies and she does it shamelessly!  I kinda love it, but kinda hate it at the same time because she is so self-absorbed.

Watching this just got me thinking about selfies... What is the purpose of selfies? Here's my take on the selfie trend!

  1. They make you feel good about yourself and boost your confidence
  2. You can take 50 pictures first and then you will get ATLEAST one of them that looks amazeballs! 
  3. You don't have to worry about another person in your picture getting antsy and not wanting to take more pictures
  4. You can immediately show friends on social media how good you are looking (refer to #1 for how this will make you feel)
  5. It can remind you how good you don't look and will motivate you to go shower and get ready for the day 
What do you think about selfies?  Are they A-Okay or just self-absorbed ways of making yourself feel better?


  1. I take selfies and I'm not sure how to feel about it. Like, when I do it, I feel a little ashamed and like people are thinking "oh, she's so vain she just likes to see herself in pictures and she thinks she's SOOOO pretty." And that makes me think, why DO I take selfies? Do I really think I'm super pretty that I want everyone to see it. Ugh. First world probs, really.

  2. I have no problem with selfies, but I usually don't think to take them.

  3. Selfies are A-ok in my book! I like your list, and I agree with #1 the most :)
