Selfies are a fun use of our cellphone cameras and social media sites such as Instagram.

I know a 16-year old who gives a lot of thought to producing her selfies.

And the Wall Street Journal recently wrote about the next iteration of self-absorption, selfies – Instagram photos of our valued personal belongings on a shelf.

Selfies are an expression of our creativity the way taking a Polaroid picture that developed after being pulled from a camera was to our parents.  It is not a way of life.  It’s just a fun thing to do.

In the digital age, relationships suffer because some people – not all – have become addicted to themselves.

To keep a healthy balance, be sure to also focus on other people.

We have lots of tools, social media and connectivity to unleash on focusing meaningful attention on others.
