We, at the end of the day, are animals. We naturally strive to be the fittest of the pack so we can attract the healthiest, sexiest mate. We are also naturally pack animals, we look and desire praise from others and to be "chosen". My question for you, as animals w a fairly well-developed prefrontal cortex, is WHO do you actually value the praise from, who do you care to be CHOSEN by. Narrow your scope. We have so much info and chatter in our ears but we can choose who, if anyone gets to dictate our value. This being alive, being human thing is really hard. We have not evolved enough as a species to have our animal instincts be immune to social media pressures. We're still too simple. The ask is that you choose how you are going to be valued and by whom. Also choose how you want to portray yourself to the world around you. Are you tired of being perfect online but naturally imperfect in real life? Merge them. Choose the real one.
