*Ce qui fait bien sur Instagram : Sometimes life's just so hard.
#Sadness#BrokenHeart#AimezMoiSvp * La réalité : Tout va bien, j'ai juste envie qu'on me demande comment ça va et qu'on pense que je suis vraiment quelqu'un de torturée parce que c'est vachement mieux que d'avoir l'air heureux.se.
I recently read an interesting article on how social media is turning us into a fake generation. Society nowadays allows us to hide behind screens. People don't want their friends to think they're lonely, so they post photos and statuses that show how much fun they can have. People only take selfies when they look their best, not when they have just woken up, dark circles under their eyes & no make-up, because people want others to think they're secure, when in reality, they might not be. 50 'likes' & several 'gorgeous 😍,' 'hot 🔥' comments later to that photo where 30 selfies were taken from the same angle prior to the one posted (plus the obligatory filters added to showcase your Hollywood smile, flawless skin & everlasting tan), can do wonders for an individuals' self-esteem!
There is an obsession to prove to the world that we have perfect lives, faultless relationships, thriving social lives, immaculate friendships, flawless appearances. The reality is very different. It is social media that allows us to convey these lives that we want others to believe we have.
We are all guilty of this. However, I don't need to broadcast every high & I don't hide every low. I don't need to convince the world I have a life & I can tell what I see online whether it is genuine or not. If I ever do become disillusioned by it, I simply turn away from the screen & spend time with those genuine people. Yep, it's called good old-fashioned communication of the vocal kind. Remember a time when people actually spoke to one another? Try it, it's a beautiful thing.
People are certainly not who they 'post' to be. Here's to the real people not living an 'Insta Lie.' I know who you are, and you rock! ♥

It was supposed to be the world's greatest BLT. Toasted sourdough. Heirloom tomatoes. Homemade tofu bacon. Organic red leaf lettuce AND avocados?!? I even took pictures to capture the majesty. It looks so pretty!! I cannot tell an Insta-lie: it sucked. #nofilter#foodporn#instalie#disappointment#blt#sadsandwich
