“Born this way” has taken on many connotations over the past year. It is a blog with childhood stories of LGBTQ people. It is the name of Lady Gaga’s album. These popular messages have given many people a sense of empowerment—it’s okay to be who we are, and we should love ourselves. I would not call this kind of self-love “narcissism,” but rather, I would call “born this way” a form celebration of each individual.
