A MORE BEAUTIFUL WORLD


If we are to trust research, nearly half the women edit their photos before posting them on social networks. Dear members of the opposite sex, stop shaking your heads. You are no better. In your case, the percentage is nearly the same. In the era of Instagram filters and numerous apps for photo editing, it is hard to stay determined in showing your world exactly as it is – with a few extra lines around the eyes, with a few extra pounds around the waist, in an unattractive working environment, walking around in nature that has lost its hues. Who wants to see that?

I admit (this blog will turn into my personal confession if I keep going and I’ll be able to skip Sunday confessions), I can’t resist them either. A teeny tiny filter, at least. It always makes the photo a bit more appealing. Naturally, what I’m haunted by (in my dreams) is the following: if I retouch my photos, am I retouching my life? I probably am a bit. But we are aware that there is no such thing as perfection and that we all cheat a little using advanced technology. That’s why I keep justifying myself with the fact that I’m trying to be moderate in cheating. I think it’s just a matter of not overdoing it. A bit more beauty than the real deal offers – it’s not such a big sin! Am I right?
