NOPE! I'm not living my Best Life but Doing the Best I can

Oh how Social Media is used as the greatest tool to showcase the facade of a great life manifested through edited Instagram posts of people "living their best life" in identical fits all from Fashion Nova.

Today, we'll be talking about Social Media and the great pretenders of the Internet. Nah, I'm not bitter or "bad-mind" as we like to say in Jamaica, just brutally honest. There I was in the Do You Boo group on Facebook when I saw a post about a young woman who admits to not living her best life (according to Social Media). She expressed how she lives one life on Instagram and how much she struggles in her actual real life to afford the fake life she created on Instagram --she works 3 jobs just to keep up and is always late on her credit card payments because of the number of outfits she buys weekly just to be "Instagram Goals". Be mindful that this person lives in a first world country (USA) and I live in a third world country (JAMAICA).

ME! A regular-degular girl who love all things Lifestyle
This post hit home as I can truly say -- I myself is not living my best life (according to Instagram) I never post daily outfits, I'm not in a new country every week and I'm not having Lobster meals every day! Sure I do live a pretty normal comfortable life that I have to work hard for, but according to the standard set by the "Instagram Famous" that is not good enough and I'm not living my best life. I do have an 8-5 with the family business that I have to go to daily since I resigned from an outside job recently just so I can be a lifestyle blogger and actually so something that makes me happy. In these times, people are more invested in creating a fictional life on Social Media than creating a real one that If you are not constantly posting Images, you seem like a failure and not living your best life. There is nothing wrong with living a normal life where you are able to work hard and pay your bills on time and buy your self nice things every now and again as a reward for your hard work. Times are different but do not fall victim to Social Media Fakeness.

I hope that the young people today will live their truth and live their real lives rather than living a manufactured one on the Internet where they have to constantly have more stuff to keep with everybody else. If you do make a living on Social Media, all power to you --it's not easy, be smart, be strategic and most of all ... SAVE!

Are you living your Best "Social Media Life" or your "Real Life"?

Our article takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective and voices matter – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our posts, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure.
