The word "imperfect" actually spells "I'm perfect", because everyone is perfect in they're own imperfect ways.
So why should I use ten different filters and make my skin look as smooth as possible? Only to show an image of someone I'm actually not?! I have scars and many things society may see as something that could be fixed. I can't even imagine how hard it must be to be a teenager and seeing all this so called "perfection" on social media.
It's obvious that scrolling through instagram can cause some serious case of FOMO. (Fear of missing out) People are publicizing usually something really cool or fun that they’re doing, or at least they make it appear that way.
8/10 times you'll find me in my pyjamas, nestled on the couch, watching Netflix and eating a bowl of ice cream. I know, such a wild child.
While making this picture👆🏻I actually had lots of Lyme related pain (like I have most days these past weeks) and had to sit down every few minutes to give my legs a break.
But that seems a bit too much to share on a daily basis. So I usually post the pictures that make me look back and think "wow, those were happy times at the beach". What is your take on social media? Does it make you feel insecure or do you actually like seeing perfectly styled and edited pictures? Would you prefer to see some more reality? Let me know!❤👇🏻
