Cyberspace has become an escape from reality for many people today. Often people use network sites to escape the reality of their lives and if only for a little while become someone they could never be in the real world. This can be a healthy way to boost confidence and find who you truly are inside, but unfortunately most get so lost in the personal they disappear completely in the fantasy world then when faced with the reality of actually meeting people face to face they can’ accept that they aren’t who they have been portraying. It is so easy to get sucks into the fantasy and lose touch with the real you. The MTV Show “Catfish” shows this all too well yet people just continue to do it. It is one thing to go online and gain self-confidence and work to improve yourself along the way but to post pictures of other people and lie about who you are only eats away at the real you and in time in your mind you become that person but of course you can’t live that fantasy forever so you start to self-loath because you realize you are not able to live up to the image you have created. My advice, always be true to yourself and do give in to the weakness of trying to live a fantasy. In the end it hurts you and potentially the people you are lying to and it will only make you hate yourself in the end.
