The “Instagram vs reality” fad has arrived.

When was the last time you uploaded your picture on social media without any photoshop or filter?Likewise, we’ve all got a buddy who can’t upload a photo to Instagram or Facebook without photoshopping it so much that you can’t tell who they are – you know that friend who we are talking about! This fact explains a lot about how the availability of picture manipulation technology has fueled society’s fixation with body image. On the other side, we have friends who aren’t scared to flaunt their natural attractiveness. Obviously, they are many people who are comfortable with uploading who they actually are, they don’t seem different on social media or in real life.

Just go and have a look at the ‘Instagram Reality’ subreddit, you will frequently find examples of people who go beyond with photo manipulation and photo editing. Well, that’s not the case with every person, oftentimes we see perfect examples of those attractive individuals who enjoy their bodies in all of its imperfections and there’s nothing wrong with that. Duh!! We need individuals in our lives who support being oneself while discouraging bodily manipulations. Because individuals these days are strongly affected by social media influencers with beautiful flawless bodies uploading pictures with ideal poses at perfect locations. Everything appears to be perfect in their image, but this is not the case. And we are all aware of this truth.

We’ve gathered some of the most wholesomely honest images from r/Instagramreality, so scroll down and have a look at them:
