In an era of apparent cyber narcissism, one wonders why we seek virtual validation through social media to measure our worth.  We obsess over the number of “Likes”, comments on, and shares of our posts without realising those we seek validation from are likely seeking reciprocity.  Imagine being someone who considers their holiday a failure due to minimal “Likes” on their Instagram and Facebook posts.  We should not live for the arbitrary mouse clicks or screen taps of anyone else.  We have forgotten to experience life in analogue, now living digitally vicarious through an online persona.  Be your best offline.
