You’ve seen all those gorgeous images of people, places, animals, food, and other things posted on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and don’t these photos just give you the sinking feeling of inadequacy and not just a little envy?
The hilarious fact, however, is that not all these images sum up the real story, and you can kick your green-eyed monster to the curb once you’ve seen the reality behind these carefully edited photos your friends and contacts aren’t really telling you…or the whole world about:
Because the perfect Shirshasana only requires a friend to provide balance…
And the perfect sand to curl your toes in can be found at this construction site…
…and in this truly beautiful smile.
Like it or not, people always want to show the best sides of themselves, no matter how far removed it is from the reality of their lives.
Whether it stems from an attempt to boost their self-confidence, make other people envious, or show the whole world what a wonderful time they’re having, these heavily edited images proliferate social media in selfies, groufies, travel and food shots, and various other attempts at artistic photography.
Like this brooding black and white shot of an emo teen…at the ATM machine.
…or this heavily filtered “white” beach “solo” adventure.
…and the historic Taj Mahal without its foreground of filth.
Unless you were actually there when the photo was taken, it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. Even the most “bare” and “unfiltered” images have been subjected to a couple of tweaks here and there.
The crop tool is very popular….and this hedge is only as tall as the subject’s squat…
…and this pretty little garden doesn’t really tell the story of the whole jungle…
…while this stunning sunset doesn’t really include those sacred cows.
So the next time you see stunning images on your social media feed that make you feel sorry for the ordinary life you lead, remember that there’s more than meets the eye.
Once you know the real story behind each photo, its a guarantee you’ll feel much, much better…
