Selfish

A girl is taking a selfie with her crying daughter to get likes.

2018

Do you approve of me and my baby? Thanks for the likes, I’m sure when my child grows up she won’t mind that I’ve shared her life with the world – good or bad – to sell products, services and promote brands. I just need the approval of that thumbs up to make sure I’m a good parent, the more thumbs up the better it gets. What’s that you say? Timid uncertainty in my eyes that anxiously need those responses, and there is no corner of the nursery left private, I’ll share their schools and grades and achievements with you all without fear, remorse or worry, like, like, like. I take a bow, curtain falls.
