Did you know about the harmful facts of Instagram?
1. Extremely beautiful and symmetrical women photos in every direction;
We look at these pictures and look at ourselves as ordinary, unbearable, unlucky, sometimes even unnecessary.
2. To be constantly exposed to the lives of others and to compare them with your own lives
We are constantly exposed to others. We become knowledgeable about them, we tire ourselves for them. They make us forget ourselves, they prevent us from spending time for ourselves. They make us feel like we’re a loser. We are left behind, we are failed in every direction; they are living a life they like exactly and they are perceived as very happy. They make us think of joining them, being like them, if we don’t; then we would be a loser, a big one to be kicked. The truth is, we will never be exposed to constant scrutiny in front of the cameras, as we will never be able to live those lives. There is a saying, “Do they keep us from us?” Is there a need to say something else?
3. Convince us that we have failures
Looking at those “perfect” photos, watching those “fantastic” lives make us feel like we are losers all the time. Sometimes this causes us to create problems even we don’t have any. Furthermore, it also causes us to think as we would never achieve such great things. Like as; being so fit, having such great muscles, having a fashionable wardrobe, traveling all the time etc. It seems people don’t want to see more “perfect” lives anymore. “Love yourself as you are” topic is gaining popularity lately on Instagram. Maybe next year we will see one of those photos in our top 10 list!
