People who spend a lot of time on social media are more depressed. Actually, social media tends to engender feelings of covetousness, longing, inferiority, and lack. People who post a lot on social media seem like they are having a lot of fun. Looking at cute selfies, adorable babies, picture-postcard vacations, and luscious meals in glamorous restaurants can make our own lives (and our own selfies) seem sort of lackluster. The fact of the matter is that a lot of life is ordinary. We go to work and come home; our kids get dirty and act disrespectful; sometimes lunch comes from the vending machine. Social media is a nonstop window looking out on the life you don’t have.
