The Selfie Life

Over the course of a generation, we have seen the selfie culture on the rise. This is not just in terms of photos, but in terms of the amount of importance we often place on self-gratification, even at the cost of our relationships and our ties with the communities that we are part of. The two-letter word “me” has probably become the most important aspect of most of our conversations and lifestyle choices.

This happens because we often end up seeing ourselves as the centre of the universe. We get so obsessively wrapped up in our own world that we forget about the people around us and their struggles. Maybe, just maybe, there is a different way to look at life and its very purpose.

The Bible says “If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it. But if you give up, you will find true life”. This tells us about the paradox of life as it really is. If we try to keep our lives to ourselves, caring about only our own interests, we will completely miss the bus. On the other hand, if we pour out ourselves in love and service towards the people placed in our lives, we will truly discover the joy of life in all its beauty and abundance.

So we can either be full of ourselves and have an empty life, or let go of our self-obsession and have an abundant one. What is your choice going to be?
