Our lives were already distorted after the emergence of the internet, but now social media has distorted it even further. It gives us an illusion that we are alone when we are not and vice versa. Moreover, it opens up an alternate reality, and we cannot make any decisions in our lives without considering it. We start judging people based upon what they post or share on social media, without knowing how these people are. However, the worst judgments are the ones that we put on ourselves. To avoid that we should make sure that we have anchored our lives properly in our family, friends, work, or our realistic surroundings, and social media just acts as an extension to it.
Quotes; “Social media shows us a very unrealistic face of everything. It makes you feel that you have thousands of friends when in reality, you don’t.” – Quote by Dr Prem Jagyasi
