Beyond Me, My Selfie and I
by Teresa Tomeo
You might not know it by observing popular media, but the world does not revolve around “me, my selfie and I”.
Teresa Tomeo, media expert and host of the syndicated radio program Catholic Connection, believes “selfie culture” represents a society that is losing touch with its humanity. In Beyond Me, My Selfie and I, she offers real ways to rebel against the narcissism of modern life and rediscover our relationship with each other, the beauty of nature—and, most importantly, God.
Tomeo explores Church teachings and Scripture passages about self-centeredness versus other-centeredness, as well as the thoughts of Popes John Paul II, Benedict and Francis, all of whom have written and spoken extensively about the proper use of media. She’s also gathered practical advice from a number of media experts on how to find balance when it comes to selfies and other media activities.
Tomeo makes the case for “selfie control,” with advice for moms and dads on navigating today’s media minefields. She’ll also provide research-backed methods for finding real happiness by giving and putting others first rather than staying focused on oneself.
When your identity is focused in Christ—as opposed to yourself—life becomes so much more than fleeting moments of attention. You’ll read inspiring examples of individuals who made a real difference in the world, as well as people whose change in media habits changed their lives—and the lives of others—in surprising ways.
