In this Tuesday’s blog post, I’m going to talk about What you don’t see on social media. I’m sharing some moments where I hid myself from online life. If you’re in a viscous circle of comparison right this moment, you got to read this.
What you wouldn’t find out from my social media postings is that I love my family, I love wearing heels, I don’t share selfie pictures and I’m an introvert.
With social media, you’ll never know what the person is truly like. I understand how easy it is to judge someone based solely on these posts. There’s more to it.
Remember that social media personas aren’t the whole truth. Rather, they’re just pages of information of what I choose to share. But again life can still be honestly magical. Maybe take the pictures you see with a grain of salt or, perhaps allow yourself a moment to believe that maybe the trick of it all is to feel like there can be a small amount of perfect within the mess.
Let’s take Facebook post as an example. Everything I want to be doing, or strangely, the things I think I want to be doing. That is, Facebook is inherently biased.
The number of pictures I take of myself working, sitting on a couch, hiding behind my pajamas and thick writer’s reading glasses?
Anyways, I’ll close with this “what we see is not all that there is”.
What other options are there? You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing. The world needs you to be weird. Now I tag you to share what you don’t talk or share on your social media.
Or better yet, to be you. Not what you think you ought to be. Just be YOU!
I hope this helps anyone reading this post to refrain from comparing at this moment.
