Highlights are only what you see

When you are online you will see people posting. Those posts are usually only the highlights of that person, a majority of people don’t post online when something bad happens to them or when they are doing their normal schedule.

Why are people doing this? Because they want to show off how awesome they are, how proud they are of something happening, and to get others to congratulate them. It’s a major dopamine hit.

Some say they post to encourage everyone to try and do better, when in fact many people say when they see positive posts they hate themselves more because they aren’t doing something so cool.

I encourage you to think about why you are posting something online before you post it. Yes it will mean less posts from you but that isn’t a bad thing.
