It's All In Your Head
I think the main issue with social media and I, is that it's a constant mental game. One moment I'm proud of myself for something I've accomplished, the next thing I know I'm aimlessly scrolling through my feed seeing other peoples' moments that seem to make mine feel insignificant. The rational me knows that this isn't true but somehow I always close the app after I start to feel negative towards myself or my work. That is where the problem lies.
We all know that instagram is a glorified highlight reel, but yet we let it affect us mentally at times. I once read this quote,"it's completely unfair to compare someone else's highlight reel to your behind the scenes." I just hope that as long as social media is a thing, we can all remember that. A photo isn't a picture of your life, it's only one moment.
Everyone has good days and bad days. We are all human and we all desire to feel loved. I hope that love is never felt through how many likes you get or how many followers you have. But instead through the connections you make face to face on a daily basis. We all need to remember that cyberspace only exists from a screen - real life exists when we put the screens down.
