Truth be told, once upon a time we couldn’t see our picture standing inside the frame… until the ‘selfie’.
The selfie exploits supreme confidence externally; however sifting through exposes opposite emotions internally.
One can learn a lot from fluffing pillows. Although the outside surface (of the pillow) passes the test, experience has shown us something’s not quite right on the inside… the reason for using filters… I mean ‘fluffing’ in the first place.
As an alumni of App State, my school’s motto is “Esse quam videri”, meaning “To be, rather than to seem”. No matter the trend, the motto remains the same.
Strive to make sure the external ‘Selfie Filter’ (pillow fluffing) aligns with the internal truth (who we really are).
