Self-Absorption, Self-Indulgence, and Self-Love
Do you ever find yourself scrolling through Instagram posts, sifting through beautiful women ‘models’, googly-eyed couples traveling the world, and hundreds of selfies? Amongst the thousands of likes and comments on everyone else’s photos you wonder, how does my Instagram account compare? Will I get enough likes or shares? Social media plays a big role in all of our lives – and, let’s face it – it is essentially unavoidable.
We can choose to use social media in a healthy and moderate way, or we can fall into the trap of instant (and temporary) gratification. First, I will define self-absorption, self-indulgence, and self-love with real-life examples.
The most fulfilling place to be is full of self-love. Once we get to a place of self-love, posting and interacting on social media becomes a much more enjoyable experience that will help grow our relationships in a positive way.
What is Self-Absorption?
When we think of someone who is self-absorbed, we think of someone who cares little for anyone but themselves. Maybe we think of someone we know who exclusively posts selfies on Instagram – someone who sincerely believes that the world revolves around them and them alone.
