Rabindra Dhungel, 9 october 2020. Worried about what a selfie would look like? If so, be aware that various researches over the years have linked selfies to mental illness.

Some time ago, a psychiatrist from London, Dr. David Will claimed that taking regular selfies was a sign of “Buddy Dysmorphic Disorder”. Its patients see imaginary evils in their own form.

“Since the development of the camera phone, two out of three people with Buddy Dysmorphic Disorder have come to me with the urge to take selfies and upload them to social networking sites,” he said.

In one such incident, British teenager Danny Bowman attempted suicide because he was dissatisfied with his appearance in a selfie he took. He was so obsessed with attracting girls that he spent more than 10 hours a day taking ‘perfect’ selfies and taking more than 200 selfies.

He dropped out of school, left home and eventually attempted suicide. ‘I was constantly looking for the perfect selfie. And when I realized I couldn’t take such a selfie, I wanted to die, “the teenager was quoted as saying by the Sunday Mirror.

Linda Papadopoulos, another London-based psychiatrist, recently linked selfies to eating disorders and other mental illnesses. According to him, because of selfies, people spend more time on social media and analyze themselves as an object. She urges people to focus not only on beauty but also on other qualities.

‘We know,‘ Body Image Eating Disorder ’has increased. People born in the millennium have the highest levels of depression, ‘she says. Take a selfie with a guitar? Show legs or not? From this app or from that app? ‘

Especially teenagers have more problems due to selfies. As the trend of imitating celebrities increases, so does the mental stress it brings. Papadopoulos says social media stars should also be vigilant in this regard.

She says that communication is the most reliable way to get rid of such problems. She says, ‘Think, read, talk. You can feel comfortable with these things. ‘
