Mirror Mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
We all have heard and read this story. Every time the evil queen asks the question to mirror expecting her name to come up, mirror takes the snow whites’s name. What follows is saga of jealousy, gaining supremacy and in the end snow white is victorious.
The story plays out differently in our lives now. You are the evil queen as well as the Snow White. The mirror has been replaced by the social media.
We are forever clicking selfies, photoshop them to get that flawless skin, lovely cheeks and beautiful smile. We post them and check with bated breath for the first like and then every five minutes how many likes and comments are being received. When you get the response as per your wish you are the Snow White and when you don’t you are the evil queen.
The evil queen keeps looking for answer, that perfect selfie or a post. Till she gets that she throws herself in the vicious cycle of low self esteem, depression and feeling of rejection.
Wouldn’t be the best if you try to be the mirror instead of snow white or evil queen. Mirror sees exactly what is in front of eyes, it is honest, it doesn’t lie. It is the fairest character of the story! Be the mirror!
