Social Media is great, Im not going to deny it. I a self proclaimed Instagram lover, and whats a better feeling than getting 50+ likes on your Facebook profile pic? But is social media ruining our lives? Or being able to quickly access the latest and greatest.
It has become this, look at how perfect my life is, look at all these aaaaamazing things I do, and look at where I am in the world. Because lets be honest, you don't put up that you just had a fight with your best friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/parents. Or you failed a uni paper. And the same goes, when you see a picture of someone you thin about how happy they look, or what the photo is showing you, but you cant see what the frame has purposely ignored. You only see what the person wanted to show the viewer.
So why do we do it? why do we fool ourselves into thinking our lives are perfect because our Facebook/Instagram is the proof it is. Life is meant to have ups and downs, good times and bad, otherwise how are you going to learn about the great ordeal of live. We obsess over people that have perfect lives/perfect hair/makeup or they have that 'instagram look'. Because we see other people doing the things we want to do and we suddenly follow them on very social media platforms available. Why can we not be content with our lives and focus on whats going on, and what we want to do. Social Media has this incredible power that if we don't check it ever 5 minutes we might miss out on something, but really we're staring at the same things we did 5 minutes ago.
