The Falsehoods of Social Media

You create what you see.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

This week the wisdom is coming from my heart center. What you see on social media, the news, magazines, and even in the public eye is not always that person’s truth. You create your own truth through judgment.


Each one of us has our own stories. Understanding your story and the truth of it allows you to be more compassionate with others.


You create what you see.

Filters are amazing and photos do not capture all the moments. I can smile in the deepest depression and appear happy. The effort to do so is exhausting and you would never know it.

Don’t judge, don’t compare, and most of all don’t hate. It’s never pretty and can be seen without the capture of a picture.

  • Be mindful of where you place your attention.
  • Reach out to the people that appear to be strong.
  • Be supportive.
  • Lift each other up.
  • Make this world the world you want to be a part of.

This is why the world needs you. (#theworldneedsyou).

That’s your greatest power.

Xoxo, Michelle
