The Need To Be Seen

The Need To Be Seen

Do everything in order to show something to someone, and I don't mean to show your best friend something. I mean to show your outfit, what you're doing at the moment, your pictures, and even your private life, for example, on your Instagram stories.

Once, I heard one of my friends saying, 'I don't want to show other people my life; I just want to maintain a diary of my life.' But you can have a diary without showing the world your life. Many people don't realize what the reality is. The reality is that we unconsciously fall into an addiction.

Social Media: The Addictive Lifestyle

It often happens that when you start posting and scrolling on social media, it becomes an addiction and a 'need' to satisfy every day. Soon, it will start to dominate your life and your mind.

You may not want to delete it because you won't be able to stay updated on what other people are doing and the news from the 'outside world.

Fake Identities

Fake Identities

Saying "Fake Identity" is probably an exaggeration, but it's true that many people show the best part of them, and maybe it's not even real. Maybe they're not satisfied in that moment, but is important to post something beautiful to see, because real feelings sometimes cannot be shown

🧠❗(I was getting into the role, because of course it's important to understand and feel the feelings even if they're "bad", like sadness, angry, pain ecc).

Bad Consequences

Bad Consequences

If you're in the loop, you don't realize how bad it can become, and some people don't want to accept that this could also lead to dangerous consequences. For example:

  • Social anxiety
  • Occasional depression
  • Difficulty in making decisions and thinking for yourself
  • Inability to form your own opinions
  • Insecurity (due to beauty standards, for example)
  • Avoiding spending time alone with your own thoughts

I've heard many people say things like, 'Okay, social media is dangerous, and we need to do something to change this situation,' but then they didn't take any action.

Are There Any Pros About Using Social Media?

Are There Any Pros About Using Social Media?

I think so. For example, there are many social accounts where we can learn about places in the world, literature, philosophy, science, and more. Or we can follow in the footsteps of those who truly have an enlightened point of view or a particular way of thinking.

  • People to be inspired by.
  • People who are different from the crowd.
  • People who have built their lives on a solid foundation.

Personal Experience

I deleted Instagram three months ago after using it three times a week for a year. I have no regrets about this decision because I've become aware of the potential long-term consequences on my skin.

I don't think social media is inherently bad. They can be used with the awareness that what you see there is not always true.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone
