If I were a book

The seemingly perfect lives of people, the ones that they show on facebook, you know, I was wondering how authentic that is. Because I too post rosy pictures and create one image that makes everything appear good in my life. But if you have been reading me for sometime, you would know, more things are wrong than right. Wouldn't you?

Today I was flipping through the profiles of some of the senior guys in college, seniors during my undergrad i.e.. I was awed and happy surprised, overjoyed, to notice their Relationship Status. Some couples have been seeing each other eversince, all these years. And according to common belief, distance is a big thing to tackle for a relationship. Some of them stood that test. They are still in love, probably will always be. The best part is going through their wedding pictures, you know, flowers, beautiful brides in red, pensive grooms, skies lit up by fireworks, all those dreams staring at me right out of the pages of facebook.

And sometimes I compare their lives with mine. No, I honestly do, though the grounds of comparison are totally unfair. I still do, because cribbing acts as a vent sometimes. And there is another thing I cannot help thinking about. How effectively, those pretty pictures are able to hide the craters that lie underneath.

Everyone isn't as happy as she pretends? Or is she?


Also there are a couple of profiles I stalk, but that's another story. Or no story at all. You obviously know why I stalk them, don't you?

I definitely agree with you.
But I guess, doubting is in our nature. Might be they are happy, but we make ourselves believe otherwise.
Like you had said, it always helps to see others in a similar situation, may be we try to imagine it thus.
Its just a theory though.
