A TRAP OF SOCIAL MEDIA
One of my school friends posted a picture with a long caption.
He seemed to have now become an influencer !
Of all the memories I could recollect of him, my mind went back to his “Depression phase”
And to battle down the same he was figuring out ways.
I then realized the trap of social media
Has left many out there in “INSOMNIA”
People who think of all this is true
Haven’t definitely observed their life in a preview.
So Dear Friends
The picture they posted of their fancy result sheet
Doesn’t show how many classes have they repeat
The rocking pictures of their college fest
Do not describe the event was a pure success.
Those photographs of their post workout brunch
Could be of stepping in a gym after a month
A photographer friend with photos too extra
Might just have the expensive camera.
That picture in front of the sports car
Could be of any customer in the bar
The videos of that happening trip
Is a possibility, the same they have cripped.
Those long happy cheesy birthday captions for a cousin
Who haven’t talked in 6 months
That expensive foreign dream journey
Could be simply a loan financed luxury.
That influencer who today have 1M followers
Someday in life, fought with silent Depression
Those tempting food pictures captioned”Made by me”
Could have the pure effort of her “Maid Aunty”
Thus ‘ALL GOLD ARE NOT GLITTERS’ is what I am tryna say
Believe in yourself, don’t fall for it’s prey
Everybody’s life is a bit grey
But only the fancy side is served on the tray.
Too much influence results in self harm
NOBODY POST FAILURES , keep calm .
