Are you Authentic? Or Are you ‘Perfect’ thanks to Social Media Pressure?

I’ve noticed a big issue with my travels… right from the destination picks to the outfits I pack and more…I am too engrossed on things like… I must take awesome photos, I must pick beautiful destinations, I must look awesome…

And that’s not peer pressure, not by a long shot…

it is social media pressure…

and completely self imposed if I may add.

ðŸ”ī So what if I have put on a little weight and my double chin shows in my photos…

🟠 So what if I have uneven skin and pigmentation… enough to bother me in my close ups…

ðŸŸĒ So what if I have muddy dog paw marks on my clothes because I couldn’t resist making a new furry friend in a foreign land…

Am I not old enough to outgrow this vanity? Am I not mature enough to deal with the imperfections gracefully and take them in my stride?

Hence this post…Kinda like a note to self.

In a world full of chai lattes, I should really be what I love being… myself… the streetside, affordable adrak (ginger) and elaichi (cardamom) wali masala chai…

I must choose to be authentic. I must choose to travel authentic..

No filter on my photos (well, mostly 🙈) and no filter on my words…

Can you take the pledge with me? For a world still not ready for you, arrive in style and let them deal with it…

  1. I’ve been avoiding taking my own pics for the longest! My pigmentation is at its worst, my dark circles can challenge the pandas! But I am taking up this post seriously. Will tag you on Insta tomorrow when I upload my pic 🙂
