In 2020 many people can at times, find themselves fixated by what they see on the internet, believing that the vast and relentless plethora of images and content presented to them, to be real – and as a result, a reflection of how they, themselves should be.
Of course, no-one is forced to involve themselves or engage with what’s going on online, but even the strongest of naysayers have to admit that within todays society, there is no real way of escaping social media – a platform of which were are all privy too, that when used in the right way has magical powers to do truly wonderful things.
However, as many of us may have seen or experienced, there can be a darker, more sinister side to online communities, that can make even the most confident of souls feel insecure, as they lose themselves, and their sense of perspective, in an endless pursuit of trying to achieve the perceived ‘perfect’ life.
Deep down we know not to believe everything we see posted online is 100% authentic and real, but sometimes, we just need someone to give us a gentle reminder of that…
