'Social Media Is Not Real Life': la denuncia della modella e la sua falsa vita su Instagram

"I social media possono influenzare in modo molto negativo la nostra vita, ma ormai ne siamo talmente assuefatti che non ce ne accorgiamo. Qualcuno potrebbe inventare un social media che non sia basato su criteri di approvazione come visualizzazioni/follower/like ma che permetta di condividere valori veri e amore? Per favore sbrigatevi". Parte da questa consapevolezza Essena O’Neill, la 18enne australiana che ha conquistato il popolo di Instagram a suon di foto. Nell’epoca 2.0 molte modelle cominciano così: un selfie, uno scatto, un like, un follower. E il resto è storia.

Ma vivere sempre in posa è faticoso e così Essena ha scelto di darci un taglio e cambiare vita e profilo rinominandolo “Social Media Is Not Real Life”, mettendo in didascalia il vero retroscena di ogni post. Rivelando, come in questa foto, quanti tentativi ci sono voluti per ottenere la foto perfetta in cui la pancia sembrasse piatta e senza una grinza. Altro che scatti rubati alla naturalezza!

There is nothing zen about trying to look zen, taking a photo of you trying to be zen and proving your zen on Instagram.
[…] I don’t want approval anymore, it traps me into thinking I need more and more and more. I don’t want to be liked or judged either. I want a place where I can give with no expectations or outcome. I don’t want followers anymore. I want a world of individual beings.

Why would you tell your followers that you’re paid a lot to promote what you promote? Why would you tell your followers that you literally just do shoots every day to take pictures for Instagram? Yet I, myself, was consumed by it. This was the reason why I quit social media: for me, personally, it consumed me. I wasn’t living in a 3D world.
My sister and I just went to the beach because I had to promote the blouse AND the jeans. A few hundred $ for each of the things.
The truth is: I had to take over 50 selfies in order to get ONE that you might like.

And again: I took hundreds of selfies every time because no selfie was good enough
Serenity! Take me back to this 🙌🏽 I was in a dark place back then, but this picture reminds me of who I really was. Not what people thought I was
INSTAGRAM IS BACK! I need to pay the bills, whatever it takes. I'm not going to let anyone bring me down!
Was paid $400 to post a dress. That's when I had maybe 150k followers, with half a million followers, I know of many online brands (with big budgets) that pay up to $2000 per post.
EDIT REAL CAPTION: "paid for this photo. If you find yourself looking at 'Instagram girls' and wishing your life was there's... Realise you only see what they want. If they tag a company, 99% of the time it's paid... this^^^ this has no purpose. No purpose in a forced smile, tiny clothes and being paid to look pretty".
