Does anyone else, think social media is poison to our minds? Scrolling, clicking, looking. Is every damn person this perfect? Looking at these perfect women, their slim bodies that are curvy in all the places. Perfect skin, hair, teeth. Huge breasts, bums, lips. Why the f, can't I take a picture like that? And for the love of God, do they REALLY look like that? If so, why don't I? What does my boyfriend think when he scrolls through his feed? Does he wish I was like these women? Why is he always on his phone?
Why can't everyone just forget social media and go back to living in real time? Making real conversation, with real people. Making real memories, instead of knowing people through an image they create online through pictures, and statements.
These are the thoughts that fill my head and consume my mind on a daily basis. I am so hard on myself, and It is hard to stop. I know "everyone is beautiful" and it is important to "love yourself for who you are". But it is easier said than done. I spend hours researching plastic surgery, trying to find the funds, exercising till I am exhausted, and doing everything I can to be "perfect"; even knowing it is unrealistic and unattainable, not only for me but for anybody. Even knowing this, that perfection is a myth, I find it absolutely crushing.
