Exactly. For me, as someone with body dysmorphic disorder, selfies are self-care. I write more about this here. They’re also just not as narcissistic as people make them out to be. I see at least one person in the comments talking about selfies that ended in death for the selfie-taker, but of course the media pounces on those! Selfies are part of self-expression for people of all generations.
