Social Media is a place where everyone seems to want to make like look all put together.
But life isn’t put together. No ones life is perfect or even close. But celebrities – well a lot of them – always seem to want to project this perfectly put together life on Instagram.
And then enter Lili Reinhart – who we all can pretty much agree, keeps everything real.
The actress was on Miley’s Instagram live talk show, Bright Minded and talked about how she approaches Instagram.
“The idea of Instagram is to project your best self. I have always approached social media in the way that I don’t want to show the perfect version of myself because I could never live up to that in real life. That’s just not who I am,” Lili said on Bright Minded.
“It’s such a hard standard to set for yourself. I genuinely think Instagram should be a way to express creativity. But when it comes to your body you’re just hurting yourself and the people that are looking at Instagram thinking that’s a body they can have, when you’re altering it yourself. Skinny women are shrinking their waists more. People look at themselves poorly. If an already skinny person makes their waist smaller, it’s frustrating.” she finished.
Lili speaks truths.
