Unedited

Technology has done an interesting thing to us. It has allowed us to finally edit our lives to be suitable for presentation. Before we post that picture or before we send that text, we are able to carefully craft how others will view us.

A lot of technology has allowed us to deny certain parts of ourselves and to highlight others. When I interact with people in person I feel like I am my genuine self. I don’t have time to edit myself in a real-time conversation. When we use technology to edit who we are to other people are we being honest with them and with ourselves?

Yea I know this is kind of a tired topic, but I don’t think it makes it any less valid. Honesty is important, and it’s up to us to decide who is worth it.
