📢 A few months ago, I’ve watched an excellent interview with Andrew Scott, and I really liked his thoughts about social media (quote below). Recently, I’ve realized how it’s... embarrassing and wrong to represent sensitivity. To be vulnerable. Indeed, self-advertising is just everywhere now, we share our news with strangers, we tell how great our life is. But where is the line, where’s the actual truth and where’s a lie? And I actually think, it’s represented not only in social networks. Often, in real life we can’t normally say we do feel low today, just because we afraid of some misunderstanding. But we all have bad days, feelings like everything is against us. And that’s okay. We’re humans, and that’s okay to feel. That’s okay to be vulnerable. “The most unhappy people are people who represents no vulnerability at all.”
• And one more:
“We just advertise our lives, and it may impress other people, but it doesn’t connect us. I think, when you connect with somebody, it’s not because you go “omg, my life is amazing” — “oh, my life is amazing as well”. It’s not how you actually... you can have a superficial connection with someone in that sense, but when you really connect with someone, it’s when you say “you know, I’m fucking pissed off here, I’m scared” — “you know, I am as well, I’m nervous. Are you nervous?” And then you’re actually connected with someone else rather than intimidated by someone else, and I think... The whole self-advertising... it can make people very isolated.”
