Socialization continues to change drastically. While socializing used to refer to the conversations you had face to face, it evolved to include conversations you would have phone to phone. Fast forward to now, you catch up on someone’s life via Facebook or Instagram. I have found that people feel as if they know what is going on in my life because they have seen pictures from my weekend fun, or a recent road trip, or whatever little venture I have embarked on lately. Sometimes people even know things I never told them just because of what I have posted through social media. It’s crazy.
However, life can seem so perfect when interpreted through pictures. Maybe that is what coined the phrase “picture perfect.” Seriously. I find myself scrolling through Instagram thinking, “Is that real life? How does their life always look like the perfect picture?” But the truth is, their life is just as perfect as yours is… it’s not.
Life isn’t perfect. It isn’t even close, but it is beautiful. I may have lost you with that line. YES, your life is beautiful too. It is an ugly kind of beautiful. You see life is full of the ugly, the messy, the confusing, and the complicated. But that is what makes it so beautiful. It is proof that perfection doesn’t equal beauty. Your life is beautiful because it is your life. It is original. It is one of a kind. It has so much potential to become whatever you want it to be. It is something to treasure and something to celebrate.
