Lie to Social Media is a Lie to Ourselves

Posted on: August 26, 2016

Lately I realize, some people (including myself!) can fake a lot of things in social media. I don’t do it often but when I realize some others are doing this, it gets me thinking, “Why do we do this? And whom are we kidding here???”

People post a lot of romantic pictures with their spouses while actually, they fight nearly all the times with each other.

People seem to have a lot of fun with their friends in their pictures while actually, they were busy with their phones and only got together when they took that cheerful pictures.

People post this and that just to imply they’re so in love while actually, they’re only trying to make their ex jealous, angry, regret their decisions and bla bla bla.

People fake their statuses trying to say how they have moved on from their ex while actually, they only lie to themselves thinking that it will make them look any better.

The way I see it now, we’re more focus on what it seems on social media rather than seeing what actually happens in the real life.

There’s nothing wrong from posting romantic pictures, it’s even can be so cute! But do make sure that you two are happy together too. Make an effort to make that romance happen in your real life!

There’s nothing wrong from taking pictures with your friends, but put down your phones and do actual talks when you’re sitting right next to them. Always make the real memories to be remembered and to be told to your grandchildren!

Having unfinished business with your ex? Just knock their door and tell them everything you always want to say out loud! Good things, bad things, just learn how to close your book properly!

Real life is a lot larger than just a Facebook homepage, Path timeline, and all of those tweets we have posted. When we lie to our social media, we’re actually lying to ourselves. And yes, we’re kidding to ourselves too!

Have fun with your social media, but don’t let you make fun of yourself in your own social media.

Life took me to many unimaginable people. The super kind, the selfless, the brave men, and of course, the mean and rude people, cheaters, liars, hypocrites, extremely arrogant, and all other qualities that got me thinking, “I never thought such people like these do exist!”
But I’ve also come to learn that sometimes, there is a bright side of the darkest people I know. They’re not always good, but they’re not always bad either.
At the end of the day, it helps me to define the people I can bear and the people I can’t stand. And most importantly, it helps me to decide the person I would like to become. I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome!
