#socialmedia

social media is something we all got used to the last years, it didn’t come over night but it made it easy to “communicate” with your friends, easy, lazy and convenient.. they tell you: look i am happy, so no need to reach out and ask if they are.. instead we double click and like the perfect image they show us of them.. but is this the truth and reality behind the picture? isn’t it something we all pretend to be? isn’t it presenting yourself to the world the way you want to be? from the perfect angle, with the perfect filter and with this perfect happiness caught in this particular moment? hmm, i struggle a lot with that idea currently.. it feels like we want to fill a void that we don’t have, we try to pretend being someone we are not, making it look like reality. running after this perfection, hiding our flaws and what makes us the true version of ourselves..

i am not saying it is only black and white and there are surely “real” profiles too but if you give it a thought we don’t need to catch a beautiful moment on camera, because then it means we need to pause it to catch it on camera. but if we really enjoy those moments, we forget time, we forget everything around us, we are in the flow, we enjoy and we live it and we screenshot those moment in our head and save it forever..

don’t get me wrong, i still think it is a beautiful way to share things with the world but i start to see that we need to have the life we enjoy truly first instead of just the perfect social media account.. live, love, be.. it needs really very little to be happy and grateful for what you have in life

much love, K
