Modern technologies have definitely benefited our lives – from health care to work efficiency, communication to space exploration, offering solutions to all our world problems. And we just couldn’t imagine our lives without it any longer. But with great benefits comes great drawbacks. With the rise of the Internet, smartphones, and other similar devices, we are always connected to the Internet, whether we like it or not. And though it has made our lives easier and enjoyable, it has also made us dangerously dependable on modern technology and social media. Being online all time is not only possible, but it has become a de-facto universe for many.

With that arises a whole new set of social problems – social media addiction. It might sound harmless, but depression, anxiety, and negative body image are just the tip of the social media addiction iceberg

Below set of illustrations serves as powerful and brutally honest reminders of how we are nothing but prisoners in our own digital advancements. Scroll down to see for yourself; hopefully, you will not be able to recognize yourself in these drawings, or if you do, it’s never too late to get help.

follow @ariellxe for more + read the caption ? >>> ? ORGINAL TEXT FROM @peterdevito LYRICS: the great and wise Kendrick You don’t understand that social media is also based around others ideas. It’s just some lyrics photoshopped onto my face that THE ARTIST I GAVE CREDIT TO did. I try my hardest to write and do things to help people and make them feel better but I’m never the one that gets a good response. It’s always people picking at me and getting triggered by me or even insulting the way I look. This is the last time I ever do something like this. I turned off the comments ORIGINAL CAPTION: The concept of faking a “perfect” life on social media has been around almost as long as social media itself. Not everyone is as they seem online. SO Don’t hide your insecurities because what you see online is different to yourself. Those things you call “flaws” are what make you beautiful and unique. If we were all the same we would live in a REALLY shitty world. SO EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE and what you look like. At the end of the day we are all just flesh sacks that want to be loved. Look past yours and others appearance and focus on their minds, their personalities and value the person you have in your life EMOTIONALLY NOT PHYSICALLY ? This is the real me on a good day, a day my skin was the clearest it can be, a day I wasn’t wearing contacts and my hair is a mess. You can’t tell me this isn’t what reality looks like. We all wake up looking like a hot mess after drewling on our pillows but we should be embracing our “I woke up like this” because it’s the real us. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear makeup or get dressed up etc. I’m just saying the more real you are, the more happy you will feel. (this is in no way bashing people for using photoshop, if you love using it then you do you! Photoshop can be used to create some beautiful photos but the point is to not be afraid to show the real you) ? – Text BY : @peterdevito

КАК Я ЭКОНОМИЛА ИНТЕРНЕТ ⠀ Эта фотография с глубоким смыслом, одна из моих любимых, и одна из первых творческих фото у @paveletskaya. Я люблю каждую ее фотографию, они сделаны максимально качественно и креативно, особенно трепетно отношусь к фото, которые несут глубокий смысл. Как вы думаете, у меня получилось повторить эту фотографию? ⠀ ⠀ Оно о том, что мы погрязли в своих телефонах, и наше внимание полностью направлено на поглощение бесполезной информации. ⠀ Когда я переезжала в новую квартиру, мне пришлось ждать неделю подключения интернета, и знаете что? ⠀ Первые два дня меня ломало, мне хотелось каждые пять минут заглядывать в телефон, но мобильный интернет, где был всего 1 гб. не позволял мне этого, нужно было экономить трафик. ⠀ Тогда я сразу нашла время для встреч с друзьями, которых давно не видела, много готовила, переделала дела, которые давно откладывала, и даже с Пашей мы начали общаться больше, потому что приходилось пялиться не в экран телефона, а друг на друга. ⠀ Предлагаю вам небольшой квест, который сделает вас немножко НЕинтернет чеканутыми: ◾Просыпаясь утром, не тяните руку к телефону, а прочитайте пару страниц книги или просто полежите и подумайте ◾Когда вы кушаете, особенно в компании семьи, не включайте видео на ютубе, а пообщайтесь друг с другом ◾Встречаясь с друзьями, играйте в игру “убери телефон”. Нельзя пользоваться им до окончания встречи, если кто-то не выдержит и достанет смартфон, тот выполняет ваши желания, например оплачивает счет в кафе за всех. Так вы точно будете поглощены общением, а не мемасами в интернете. ⠀ ?️Еще загляните ко мне в сторис, там я выложила отрывок из видео, который вас заставит задуматься об интернет зависимости. #paveletskaya_конкурс
