I can’t deny there are some things I desire. I desire love, affection, and care. I desire to feel wanted. I desire to feel complete but only I can complete myself.
I stay off social media because all you see are people who are happy. Couples who look in love, babies, promotions, graduations, the list can go on.
It’s so blinding that I sometimes forget nothing is ever all positive. Maybe that couple is miserable. Maybe that family isn’t perfect, maybe just maybe that smile in that selfie isn’t real.
I built up so many expectations for myself on where I should be in life. Life simply can’t be planned out. It never goes how we want it.
I have secrets and sorrows but so does everyone else. They just mask it the same way I mask mine on social media.
We live in a world of fake smiles, fake pictures. It’s a technological world. Where selfies and statuses fog up the screen. We live in a world of likes and emojis.
Maybe, just maybe, it’s all just a wall, masking what we try to hide from the world.
