We have been exposed to social media platforms for decades now. The emergence of internet became a natural respond today and I think for everyone who is reading this right now. Phone became part of our daily lifestyle. We felt like we cannot live without our smartphones because it is what keeps us occupied, updated, and connected to other people.
In some situation, we are acting differently online than in real life? Why? I have seen few of my friends, especially girls who changed their personality when they are posting and uploading photos. Like, you wouldn't thought that this person is your classmate who is shy, introvert and don't participate in class. Yet, online she was exposing her body too much, she used makeups and even her words to describe herself is different.
I do not get it why they have to change themselves online. Is it beneficial for them when they do it? Then, one time when I had a chance to talk with her in the classroom because we are the cleaners. I asked her why she was posting almost exposing her legs and boobs. I was surprised to her answer. She told me that posting photos like that gave her confident and reactions she wanted that cannot give by her friends and family.
It means she has no space at home to express herself. So her only choice to express what she wants is online platforms. She gained attention and reactions from others. When I say others, it is people she doesn't know. She barely know people who is commenting and messaging her. Since she cannot avoid then, she has to reply so that they would not think she is a snob.
For a long time, she kept doing that and exhausted herself. She lived her fake life online. Wait? Can we call it fake life when she is just expressing her real self online than in reality? In her reality, her life was just a fantasy. A world full of restrictions, rules and obedience without allowing a space for her freedom.
From my classmate's experience, she has a valid reason why she did it because her freedom was restricted and cannot be expressed. I am just sad for her because the family she was born with is like that. A family that restricted children's happiness and realness.
Because we want to express ourselves. I admit that expressing online is way easier than real life. You just have to go to you feed, type and click post. Bingo! You expressed yourself now. But in some unfortunate event, others received a total different views online that leads to cyber bullying and harsh words. That hurts!
Because want to be satisfied. The reasons why we are feeling null and void in real life is we aren't satisfied. The satisfaction we want to have and felt is not happening. The only choice is to register, sign up and interact online. This is a very common situation.
Because we want to get people's attention. I observed that people who are trending online are people who wants attention. If they want attention, then they would create issue. Bingo! Their names will be mentioned and spread faster which is their goal in the very beginning. Vloggers did this all the time.
Let us just be real with ourselves whether online or real life. There is nothing to hide. You will be accepted as you are. If you continue chasing your fake self, instead of shaping your real self. Then, I am sure others will not see beauty and genuine from you.
