Me… Me… Me…, I… I… I…, Me, Me, Me…
I just watched an interview of a young female singing artist tonight, on a late night TV talk show and this person managed to say the words “I” or “Me” 85 times in 6 minutes, that’s an “I” or "Me " about every four seconds.
I have been guilty of this myself, especially when was a young man and I still find myself working on these bad habits from time to time.
This girl doesn’t really bother me but I do have concerns with how self-centeredness and narcissistic people seem to be increasing today. And, this also seems to lead to more and more rude behavior as well. Am I wrong?
I don’t participate in the big three, popular social networking sites for that reason. I don’t text either. There was a recent study that said that the attraction to these sites were driven by narcissism and by voyeurism, two traits that aren’t good traits in a person. Is it just me or is, self-centeredness, voyeurism, and narcissism on the rise in our culture? Or is this a generational thing?
Aren’t these traits the opposite of where we should strive to be, if we are trying to actually increase our goodness, humility, patience and virtue and so on?
Where have all the good virtues gone?
This question is for people here at CAF of any and all denominations’, not just Catholic.
