Influencer reveals what’s behind the perfect Instagram posts

Blogger Georgie Clark worked on the series to remind her 690k followers not to trust everything they see on social media, and she does a damn good job if you ask me.

Each post consists of two photos side by side, just a minute apart. The same outfits, the same makeup (or lack thereof), the same everything. The only difference is in the approach; the former is deliberately taken to make Clarke look her best, while the latter looks like a random shot someone would take just to remember the moment.

Scrolling through, it becomes clear that all the flawless people that we see in our feed, with whom we constantly compare ourselves, are not so perfect. They just remember to flex their muscles and pull in their belly when they’re in front of the lens, and whoever’s behind them knows how to find the best light and the most flattering angle.

“It’s no secret that in the past my mental health affected my appearance and how I felt about myself,” the blogger said in one of her posts. “When I fought mentally, my body was punished as a result. I didn’t take care of myself and was so critical of myself and the way I look.”

“It was a vicious cycle that I dealt with for years, never getting help or paying attention to the way the problems were going through my head.”

“A few years later and some serious time of therapy, self-love and a lot of self-compassion, I am proud to say that I am the happiest and healthiest I have ever felt and my relationship with my body is just as important. . like my relationship with my brain. And wow, you see the difference,” she continued.

“When my mental health is struggling now, I [the] self care tools. It has taken so long to learn these tools, but with compassion and self-love during these difficult times, I can still realize how important it is to take care of yourself or ask for help.”

One of the things that enabled her to do this was being honest with herself and others.

Clarke posts side-by-side photos to show that there’s more to social media than meets the eye.

“It’s a reminder that just because someone is smiling in a photo doesn’t mean they aren’t struggling with their problems.”
