Social Media isn’t Always What it Seems!!!

Standard

Hey guys,

The other day, I read this article about a girl who committed suicide. She was a student athlete at University of Pennsylvania. She couldn’t handle the pressure of college as well as athletics.

That wasn’t really the thing that bothered me. It was the fact that people create a sort of persona that they use on social media. They become storytellers. People give you their best side. Only telling the part of the story.

I decided to examine my own social media and realized that I’m doing exactly what I described above. While in the moment I was feeling what I wrote, I wasn’t always happy go lucky. I only post relatively attractive pictures of myself.

Do you think you edit yourself on social media to meet some ideal? Let me know in the comments below.

TTFN,
Nerd
