It is too easy to get caught up in the fantasy world of “social media living” or “the online life.” Most of the time, what people post on social media is not their reality. They want to be someone that they are not. Because of the physical separation that social media creates between people, a person can pretend to be someone else and write a post portraying a better life for themselves than their present condition might represent. This false image can give others a perception of that person they might want to see in real life or expect the person posting the wrong life to live up to it. Instead of investing so much time on a social media lifestyle to impress others, focus that energy on improving the immediate situation and improving life in the real world. This approach will be more beneficial and result in more accurate posts and images on social media that match reality.
