You go on a selfie binge
It’s one thing to take a selfie with a friend, posing in new outfits or near a famous landmark. But is it strange to take selfies and then comb through them when you’re by yourself? Not necessarily, says Aniesa M. Schneberger, MA, LMHC at Tampa Life Change. She explains that meticulous review of selfies before posting them on social media and dabbling with filters is a common behavior that’s in line with today’s technological world of “likes” and gaining followers. However, she warns about going overboard, adding that over-scrutinizing images and getting carried away with filters may damage your self-esteem and get in the way of your authentic self.
