We are attention seekers. Only humans have something called death by selfie.
This love of attention was not a part of us but it has became a part of us over time. Its an add on.
We have a great need to be seen, to be understood and to be needed. It is a kind of value we created that has become very much of who we are.
There is nothing wrong with this in itself. The problem is that we get swept away caught up by it. We over do it. It controls us. We do not control it. Reality becomes distorted.
These distortions may seem harmless but they are not. Not at all.
