Trying To Be Perfect

Share Story to Support

When I first downloaded Instagram and Snapchat, I followed all of the pretty girls because that’s what everyone does now.

It’s social media, but they all look so perfect, like they have no flaws.

I wanted to look like them so badly that I would hurt myself because I didn’t look like them.

I would stop eating to be “skinny.”

I would cry all the time because I didn’t look like them.

I was so frustrated and upset that I tried everything to be perfect, until I noticed what photoshop and editing can do.

I still look at their profile sometimes, and it brings me down at times, but I have unfollowed the ones who I wanted to look like and that I used to think were perfect.

Social media is a b*tch, and some days I wish that I never downloaded it.
