im not all that into social media but i do have a few accounts where i post things ones in a while, and i never really thought anything of it until i heard about all these instagram models saying everything on it is fake, its all planned, its not really random moments in their life captured on camera, it takes a billion pictures to get a perfect one, and so on. and that got me thinking, they are actually right. even though im not so into it and i hate taking pictures, when i doo decide to post something, i try to make it seem like i lead a really interesting life and like i always look good. like i will take 30 pictures just to get the perfect one, if the lighting is bad then im not going to take any, if i dont have my makeup on then i'll have to take it at some magical angle (which takes a while to find) that makes me look flawless, and when i take pictures of the things around me, i try to make it seem like im always going somewhere new. like if im just around my neighborhood, i'll take a picture of something that nobody ever notices so then everyone will be like i wonder where thats at?
its kind of pathetic now that i think about it, but does anyone else do this?

Everybody does. That's how the whole social media game works. It's about winning likes or friends or follows like you win points on a computer game. I've felt uncomfortable with it for a while. I try and persuade myself that's harmless fun, but I'm not sure that it is harmless really? Especially when I think about from how I've been feeling lately.2
