Social media has become such a significant part of our lives, and with that comes the pressure to live up to certain expectations. Whether it’s the perfect Instagram feed, the number of likes on Facebook, or the constant comparison to others, it can be quite overwhelming at times. I know of many young people who find themselves struggling to strike a balance between being authentic and succumbing to the pressures of maintaining a certain image online.
I’ve heard that many of you might have experienced similar feelings or have found effective ways to manage this.
So, I’m curious:
- How do you deal with social media pressure and expectations?
- Are there any strategies or mindsets you’ve adopted to help maintain a healthy relationship with social media while staying true to yourself?
- Is there even any sense of balance or authenticity on social media, since everything is carefully curated?
Let’s be open to sharing, it’ll be great to learn from one another! I’m really looking forward to hearing your thoughts and learning from your experiences too!
