I read an interesting article today called Beware of Mommy Instagramming and it got me thinking:
Social Media gives us a glimpse into our friend’s lives, but only what they choose to show. I know that this is true and I have to always remember that when I am comparing my life to what I see on Facebook, that I am comparing my “Behind the Scenes” to their “Highlight Reel”.
Studies have proven that Facebook and other forms of social media can lead to depression and anxiety, including one earlier this year that found that one in three Facebook users felt worse after visiting the site. I am not a perfect mom, right now I have loads of dirty clothes to wash and loads of clean clothes to put away, I am still at the office and have not made it home yet to see my family. I hope that I don’t play a perfect mom on-line. I just want to show my true life (maybe not all the messy stuff!).
