Social (Media) Insecurities


I think we all need to grow a pair. Sack up & take ownership of yourself. Here’s the thing when it comes to social media… people only show you what they want you to see. Despite this, a new study shows that those addicted to social media tend to struggle with self esteem. The U.K. study of 5,000 people reveals 1/3 of respondents believe they are not living up to their full potential, but among social media users that # jumped up to 56%. In fact, 1 in 3 men between ages of 25 & 34 said they wish that they were more like the person they portray themselves as on social media. What? You wish you were your social media alter-ego? Many respondents also admitted they felt they were not attractive enough, or successful enough after comparing themselves to social media “friends”, (who, remember, are also only showing what they want you to see). Study leader Will Seymour says, “Social media usage has created a culture of comparison among today’s young people. There’s this feeling that to be satisfied with one’s life is complacent– the goal is to be in a permanent state of improvement, always striving for something better.” It is a sad state of affairs, my friends. We are devolving into a herd of politically correct, self-conscience coveters. Dig yourself. Know you are the shite. & then conquer.
