…”I want her”
"I want to be hers"?
I know what you mean. My Facebook is literally ONLY people that I’m friends with in real-life so I’m happy for their success too. I wonder if this article whould be talking about Instagram and the “highlight reel” lives that strangers post. Maybe? Who knows?
“It makes sense. What do you post to Facebook? Pictures of yourself yelling at your kids, or having a hard time at work? No, you post smiling photos of a hiking trip with friends. You build a fake life — or at least an incomplete one — and share it. Furthermore, you consume almost exclusively the fake lives of your social media “friends.” Unless you are extraordinarily self-aware, how could it not make you feel worse to spend part of your time pretending to be happier than you are, and the other part of your time seeing how much happier others seem to be than you?”
More simple things that never occur to me….
