DEW Magazine #41 Vanity Issue Summer 2021. For this issue, we challenge you to give in to your ego ace your near narcissist. Let yourself test the borders between self-love and vanity — let yourself decide how much is too much.
Self-care and wellbeing are things that are popular topics in everyone’s lifestyle. How we take care of ourselves, how we live our lives for ourselves, and how we try to better ourselves are definitely things we think about every now and then. There’s a good impact on the trend of self-care as it promotes individuality and encourages you to prioritize yourself before others. After all, with the aftermath of spending so much time in isolation last year, the person we spend the most time with is ourselves. And It’s good to take care of yourself and it’s good to give love to yourself, but you know what they say, a little too much of anything will spoil you.
For this issue, we challenge you to give in to your ego ace your near narcissist. Let yourself test the borders between self-love and vanity — let yourself decide how much is too much. If we receive the love we think we deserve, then don’t we deserve a little more? Has the obsession and current fixation on self-care and the industry of wellbeing become borderline narcissistic and have we individuals become more blinded by the thin line between taking care of ourselves and vanity?
