Distorted Reality

Social media these days allow people to only showcase the "best" versions of themselves or what they choose to portray to the world. It's mostly about personal victories and trophies. The oopsies and slip-ups don't show up on the LinkedIn and Facebook feeds. But whenever something is achieved, the confetti and loud-hailers come out. Things are often more rosy than they sound.


We often over-hype on the little successes we have and sweep our weaknesses under the carpet. For whatever excuse we have for doing that, it creates a highly warped version of what the world really looks like. And unfortunately, like it or not, most of us live and breathe in that reality.
