Dziewczyna opowiada, że Instagram zabrał jej połowę jej życia. Ma głęboką depresję i nawołuje wszystkich aby rzucili telefony, komputery i zaczęli żyć prawdziwie! „Nie musisz udowadniać, że jesteś kimś wyjątkowym wrzucając do sieci zdjęcia z miejsc w których przebywasz, fotografii dokumentujących jedzenia, które spożywasz.”
Dlaczego to robiła? Czuła się samotna. Teraz już wie, że social media nie przynoszą szczęścia. Zobaczcie ten film!
Real caption edit: @rachael_consaul took some great photos. Without a doubt she is talented. Originally I wanted them for my new site essenaoneill.com ? Oh how much can change in a few small weeks. I now wish I wasn't wearing such a mask. I love this dress for it makes me feel like a fairy. What wasn't captured was the long talks we had sitting on the beach waiting for golden hour lighting. That's real life, this image is contrived beauty, not real.
"I used to dislike being sensitive. I thought it made me weak. But take away that single trait, and you take away the very essence of who I am. You take away my conscience, my ability to empathize, my intuition, my creativity, my deep appreciation of the little things, my vivid inner life, my keen awareness to others pain and my passion for it all." - someone incredible anonymously sent this into my tumblr the other day... I have no idea who wrote it but man does it sum up my thoughts lately. (Edit: kept this photo for the caption only).
Maybe I should cover up my blemishes so people will like my appearance. Maybe I should straighten and redye my hair so I'll get more likes. Maybe I should stuff my bra so I appear more sexualized. Maybe I should pay more attention to my clothes so they appeal to mass media... Maybe I should spend hours and dollars on perfecting myself so you will like me.. Yes maybe that's what life's about (Not directed at any individual, actually that's directed to myself... Why do we do the things we? Edit: Fear and delusion. Our youth is obsessed with a 2D world. It's consuming us.
EDIT REAL CAPTION: paid for this photo. If you find yourself looking at "Instagram girls" and wishing your life was there's... Realise you only see what they want. If they tag a company 99% of the time it's paid. Nothing is wrong with supporting brands you love (for example I proudly would promote Eco sheets or a vegan meal in exchange for money as its business for a purpose to me). BUT this ^^^ this has no purpose. No purpose in a forced smile, tiny clothes and being paid to look pretty. We are a generation told to consume and consume, with no thought of where it all comes from and where it all goes.
Not real life. Only reason we went to the beach this morning was to shoot these bikinis because the company paid me and also I looked good to society's current standards. I was born and won the genetic lottery. Why else would I have uploaded this photo? Read between the lines, or ask yourself "why does someone post a photo... What is the outcome for them? To make a change? Look hot? Sell something? I thought I was helping young girls get fit and healthy. But I only realised at 19 that placing any amount of self worth on your physical form is so limiting! I could have been writing, exploring, playing, anything beautiful and real... Not trying to validate my worth through a bikini shot with no substance #celebrityconstruct
Paid promotion of a tanning product. Only wore workout wear for the photo. What does this inspire? To have to be tiny to be healthy? To have to be born into a genetically small frame and win the genetic lottery? To have to paint your body and face to look better for a photo, for the "real world". If our world is so real, why do we feel the need to change our outward appearances? Social expectations and social approval. There is more to the human race than looking "hot".
Edit: "Please like this photo, I put on makeup, curled my hair, tight dress, big uncomfortable jewellery... Took over 50 shots until I got one I thought you might like, then I edited this one selfie for ages on several apps- just so I could feel some social approval from you." THERE IS NOTHING REAL ABOUT THIS. #celebrityconstruct
