As I peruse the postings on Facebook especially the photos of people’s Christmas dinners.
They all look happy; it appears all is good in the world.
There are no signs of animosity, hurt, sadness, irritability, weariness, it all looks good.
Yet these one-dimensional images shed little light on what is happening behind the faces.
When you scan the ‘Facebook world’ all you see is one side, which often leaves you feeling left out… your world is not as perfect as they project… your smiles are not always as sincere… disguising the veneer of reality.
For you, for me for everyone, Facebook photos reflect the smokescreen of real life.
You are not alone… you are not the only one who forced a smile when they were hurting or tired…
Next time you examine a photograph remember, everyone who is posting is you
