Selfie: How We Became So Self-Obsessed and What It's Doing to Us | Will Storr
48 posts | 4 read | 1 reading | 7 to read
'Fascinating' Guardian'Brilliant' Evening Standard'Electrifying' Financial Times'So interesting I literally couldn't put it down' Sunday TimesWe live in the age of the individual. We are supposed to be slim, prosperous, happy, extroverted and popular. This is our culture's image of the perfect self. We see this person everywhere: in advertising, in the press, all over social media. We're told that to be this person you just have to follow your dreams, that our potential is limitless, that we are the source of our own success. But this model of the perfect self can be extremely dangerous. People are suffering under the torture of this impossible fantasy. Unprecedented social pressure is leading to increases in depression and suicide. Where does this ideal come from? Why is it so powerful? Is there any way to break its spell? To answer these questions, Selfie by Will Storr takes us from the shores of Ancient Greece, through the Christian Middle Ages, to the self-esteem evangelists of 1980s California, the rise of narcissism and the selfie generation, and right up to the era of hyper-individualistic neoliberalism in which we live now. It tells the extraordinary story of the person we all know so intimately - our self.As featured on Russell Brand's Under The Skin podcast.

Ok, Misty & Renee… I posted a selfie with Sami but forgot to tell you the best thing from the last 5 years. So, here‘s a selfie with Derek.
The best thing to happen in the last five years…
my kids finding and following their passions & becoming their own person. 💙


dabbe Your glasses match! #toocoolforwords ❣️ 10mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So awesome!! You made me smile 😊 ❤️ 10mo
Read4life @dabbe I completely forgot I picked out his glasses! I 💙 blue! He doesn‘t care what they look like as long as they feel comfortable so I get to choose the color. 10mo

Do I look tired? My mom said I looked tired; I can‘t tell. I feel exhausted after almost 5 months of chemo (my last chemo treatment is March 3; no you‘re not getting a photo of my almost bald head).

Tamra Hang in there! 2y

Chelsea.Poole Glad to hear it‘s almost over! Hope you get your strength back asap! 2y
melissajayne @Chelsea.Poole it‘s not almost over. In April I will have surgery and then 4-6 weeks of recovery followed by about 25 sessions of radiation treatments. That will get me to the end of June/beginning of July. I probably won‘t be fully healed at least until mid to late July. In addition, I hv @ least 5 yrs of Tomoxifin and doing blood work. 2y

Chelsea.Poole Oh I‘m so sorry, I misunderstood. I can‘t even imagine how difficult this is. 2y

My newest ugly sweater purchase. Okay, it‘s actually a hoodie. And I think it‘s cute, not ugly. But I‘m a sucker for anything Harry-related! 😂

Looking at men‘s slippers at Target because my dad and my uncle are so hard to shop for and I‘ve given up on trying to be creative with their gifts!

#selfiescavengerhunt #wintergames2021 #mistletoemaniacs 11 pts

KateReadsYA Hahaha same. Men are so difficult to shop for. I ended up gifting a smart watch, lilo and stitch boxers, a truck organizer bag, and Xbox accessories to my husband. Next year I swear I'm just gonna gift him a kit Kat or something. 2y
BethM Slippers are the best. 2y
OriginalCyn620 Personally, I love slippers @BethM! I have several pairs! 2y
OriginalCyn620 @KateReadsYA My husband isn‘t as hard to shop for, thank goodness! I‘ve been done with his shopping for a while. I hope your hubby enjoys his gifts…they sound awesome! 😉 2y

I like reading Will Storr‘s books. He‘s endlessly curious about modern life and culture and goes looking for answers everywhere. This book is about the self esteem movement that originated in California and spread everywhere. It was in classrooms all over America and in Europe. But it went too far and produced a generation of narcissistic young people. And it may have helped to give us Donald Trump (though I doubt it).

Some facts about this #friyayintro #selfie submission:

1. I didn‘t have time to check Litsy all day, so didn‘t know we were doing this until I was already in my pjs and no longer presentable.

2. Jack and I love Snapchat filters.

3. I was actually listening to my audiobook while we took this... and I still am!

4. We are glam kitties.

I really hate selfie. I can't smile, if there is a camera.
So this one I took about a month ago, after I went to my favourite booktown. I found some nice books and other bookish stuff. It was a nice day, spending time on my own and return with new books for my lovely Littens. 😊

#FriyayIntro @howjessreads

This is my puppy, Winston! He's not really a puppy anymore because he turns one in a couple weeks. 😭
I almost never take selfies (usually my husband is also in the photo), but my husband knitted the scarf I'm wearing, and my friend from HS made the bandana that Winston is wearing, so I thought that called for a selfie. 😁📸

GypsyKat Adorable! 5y

This is a selfie I took back in August with #Burley. It was the first time he didn't attack the phone and actually looked at the camera 😆😆😆 #friyayintro @howjessreads #DogsOfLitsy (I cut my face off cause I figured ya'll would rather see Burley's! 😆😆)

Happy weekend everyone!

akckitty @MinDea I agree! You can download Squarepic from the app store and all you do is upload your photo, and save it again. But when you put it on litsy it doesn't crop it out so you get the full pic! 😊 5y

Sunday night with #Cryptonomicon 😎
Don't try it at home: 900 pages book is the worst choice for a #selfie 😁
There are invisible shelves behind, but I hope the pile of books on the left will pass for a #shelfie 📚
#SisForSeptember is a real fun!
Thanks, @CaliforniaCay!

An interesting, insightful book about our culture of identity, individualism, and narcissism. Storr is an engaging writer and he examines the development of increasingly narcissistic and self-absorbed tendencies, evidenced in our politics (Trump, Brexit), our TV and films, our celebrity culture, and social media. Storr's commentary and historical analysis are smart and interesting.

Here‘s a blurry selfie after my long hot run yesterday.
