The truth is that the digital age of self-obsession has created a legion of disillusioned “best life” fibbers who are at serious risk of believing in their self-perpetuating cycle of validation whereby they base their self-worth on comments, likes, and followers.
You have toughened up enough to see through the smoke and mirrors of a social media circus, clowns and ring masters or mistresses. The true tragedy is this toxicity begins so very young with teenagers when their brain development is so vulnerable. Selfies are an anathema to the normal rites of passage merely 20 years ago. Society's future is frightful.
