How wonderful social media has become these days. We question ourselves a hundred-thousand times before we post anything because we are scared of how other people will take it or interpret it. We question ourselves on how people will perceive us. We start questioning every little thing we stand for, politically, socially, personally. We think, we are not good, thin, confident, talented or beautiful enough to be here.
We become more & more like them every day & a little less of who we are. We want to live in a bubble of the image which is formed by the perspective of others, rather than our own & we regret every little internet move we play wrong.
Social media has given us so much, but the one bad thing it has left with over-anxious & over-thinking people is the art of over self-interrogation. It is very easy for people to nudge a button & write something, but it is very hard for the person sitting behind the screen to muster the courage to pick themselves up and be the real person, who they are, instead of being a mere replica of the herd around them.
There’s no essence in being them, but there’s a kick in being YOU, coz you are you and no one can be you. The next time you regret anything, I want you to remember that we all are in the same string, and therefore we can stop the judging process. There’s a thin line of difference between Self-interrogation and over self-interrogation. Let’s remember that.
