How Can I Make This News Linking Selfies and Narcissism About Me?

Please compliment my hair in this selfie, it looks pretty good don't you think? DON'T YOU THINK? Jessica Roy

OK but what do you think of MY selfies?

The International Business Times reports that scientists have found a link between selfies and narcissism which honestly makes no sense because it’s like, how else am I supposed to derive self-worth other than posting filtered photos of my face for creepy dudes I went to high school with to save to their desktops?

“Selfies frequently trigger perceptions of self-indulgence or attention-seeking social dependence that raises the damned-if-you-do and damned-if-you-don’t spectre of either narcissism or low self-esteem,” said psychologist Pamela Rutledge, according to the IB Times.

So, to recap: Selfies are narcissistic. Selfies matter. Selfies are a cry for help. Selfies are feminist. Selfies ruin relationships.

How does my hair look, btw?
