20 Photos That Show The Gap Between Real Life And Social Media Perfection

Social media has become an integral part of our lives, allowing us to share our daily experiences with friends and family all over the world. However, many people use these platforms to curate an idealized version of their lives, carefully selecting the photos and videos they share to present a flawless image to their followers.

Behind the beautiful shots, there’s often a different reality, where people struggle with their own insecurities and imperfections. Some even go as far as to use photoshop to change their figures and faces, or hide blemishes and wrinkles. This can have a detrimental effect on others, who begin to compare their own lives to the idealized images they see on social media. This comparison can lead to feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and even depression.




The problem is that social media creates an illusory world, where people showcase their lives in the best light in order to impress others. They may be living a life of loneliness and unhappiness, but they will always share the happy moments in their lives. Social media creates a false sense of reality, and it can be hard to separate what is real and what is not.

To combat this, it’s important to remember that the images we see on social media are not always a true representation of someone’s life. To illustrate this, we’ve compiled 20 examples of how photos on social media can be far from reality.
