My blog post today is inspired by a friend of mine, Sarah Nelson. She posted yesterday on her blog about "selfies." Urban Dictionary defines "selfies" as: "An act usually carried out by girls aged 12-21, the act involves photos of one self while posing." Yikes... I'm 24. Guess I'm helping throw the average off.
I am a supporter of selfie photos for the same reasons that Sarah talked about in her post. I think there are some women who post pictures of themselves as a cry for attention, but I think that is a great way that we as women can help boost their self esteem, or encourage them! For the other women who are more confident and post selfies of themselves, I say good for you! We as women need encouragement, and it feels good to hear someone say nice things about your outfit, or your new hair color, etc. Lets focus less on putting these women down/ analyzing why they do it, and just encourage them with a compliment. Compliments can make all the difference for people, and can make someones day. So instead of putting down, lets be encouragers!
