Looking Through Social Media

Social media is the modern day looking glass house. In it you see wonderful, mysterious, whimsical things. There are larger than life things and smaller than small. Excitement waits around every corner. With one simple click you are transported to a fantastic world. But this romantic fantasy is lined by a deep, dark forest. Where the shadows slowly creep behind you until all at once you can no longer see anything but darkness. Daydreams turn into nightmares and the dancing sugarplums all but vanish into nothingness.
In this analogy, we are Alice.
Our goals, ideas and passions are the marvelous things that curiosity grows. Social media, in its vast mightiness, has the power to inspire and encourage our thoughts, our relationships and our core being. Amazing things happen in the great internets. And yet, with a simple turn of the clock, what once sparked joy and called action begins to cripple under the crushing weight of comparison. That thief which strikes in the darkness.
The little lies that add up over time. Those little lies, we might not even notice but when the snowball comes we can't pick them off. We can't tell where one begins and where the other ends. When joy turns to jealousy and the heart becomes bitter think about stepping back to see yourself more clearly and remember that little screen is only a looking glass that reflects a distorted reality.


  1. I love this so much. You really captured what social media makes you feel like, it's such a blessing and a curse at the same time. I will always think of Alice as I'm scrolling through now :-)
