I used to do that. Uploaded statuses to show how witty I was, shared images to show that I was living a good life. Well, just the usual stuff that all social media users do.
Becoming Almost Invisible
Not Worth Carrying
One angry comment can trouble you for days, an insult can crease your self-esteem, and an upsetting opinion may become hard to shake-off.

Writing down your feelings with a pen on paper is probably among the most soul-fixing things you can do – I love it.

It’s easy to pass hours daydreaming and assuming that you did something useful although you still remain in the previous emotional state, feeling wasted.
When We Justify Ourselves (and Stop Growing)
I brought groceries with a ton of unintended, unnecessary snacks that I didn’t plan to buy. The result? Buyer’s remorse and unpleasant guilt.
Coated Not Healed
Watching memes can cover depression but not heal it. Similarly, a comedy show can make you forget heartbreak but not fix it.
