    I really hate this and just find it so sad. Nobody cares about the real important things in life.

    On Instagram I never usually post pictures other than of myself, simply because of the fact that I know that my followers won't really care about other kind of pictures, for example quotes that mean a lot to me and that I think are really powerful, or a picture of a beautiful sunset.

    But anyway today I posted a picture for the first time that wasn't myself- it was a picture describing how in Japan they often repair objects with gold when they break, and this was compared to humans. Anyway the point is it was a beautiful concept, but as expected it barely got likes because people simply don't care about these things in life. However when I post a picture of myself I quickly get a lot of likes.

    This is one of the reasons why I'm a quiet person and don't talk about my interests. I feel like there's no one that values the things I do and like no one understands me.

    Anyway I guess everyone's different.

    Not expecting any responses on this, just felt like ranting.

    What's more sad is determining your worth with how much likes you get on social media.

    Where did you get that from? Nowhere have I said anything like my worth depends on how many likes I get.

    as to your question. Media/celebrities is mostly fueling the obsession with looks

    People don't use instagram to read quotes. I think the sort of social media validation you're looking for is more twitter and tumblr's niche.

    In real life the situation is different, of course looks are the first thing others see. But I'm talking only about Instagram atm.

    I don't remember saying it was of you.
    You missed the point lol

    You're saying people are superficial and care more about looks while your complaining about something just as shallow.

    In other words, you're a hypocrite
