A quick scroll through social media and you might begin to think that you're not good enough. There, people look so happy, so beautiful, it's as if the whole world is theirs.
But it's important to remember that their uploads are just snapshots and that they often don't reflect the full story, either. To illustrate this point, we present to you the subreddit 'Instagram Reality.'
Its 1.2 million members regularly share images that expose fake people online, highlighting just how ridiculous their photo editing has become. There's always more than meets the eye.

Jeremy Tyler, PsyD, an assistant professor of clinical Psychiatry at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety, speaks with patients about perfectionism and often addresses social media as a stressor.
"A big trigger for perfectionism is social media and that fear of missing out,” he said. “It can be challenging to take a step back and recognize that what is being posted isn’t reality."

"Many assume that people with those perfect photos don’t have problems, but they do. It’s important to remember that the people behind the lens are just as stressed and nervous as everyone else," Tyler added.
"Everybody suffers at some point or feels less than perfect. Social media expression is inherently biased because very few people aim to post about their flaws."

While striving for the best can be seen as a positive character trait, studies show that perfectionism can harm our mental health.
