Too many times I find myself absorbed in the array of photos in my camera roll. All which consist of the 50 selfies from that time I was feelin' myself, photos from a night out, occasional food shots, and more importantly, the infinite pictures of my dogs. If you're reading this and you're anything like me, then you know a place to store all your pictures has become a necessity.

Let me introduce you to today's world, where society has grown so accustomed to the luxury of the technologies we've been given. Making it so easy for us to simply take out our phones and snap a quick pic while storing thousands of photos along the way. As convenient as this is, there's a chance we can get too caught up in our social media image instead of the world around us.

This struck me firsthand as I eagerly awaited seeing my favorite artist. I sat there patiently waiting out the opening act amongst a crowd of thousands. Then finally, the main event began. But I was too busy unlocking my phone that I missed the grand entry. All for what? To record a shaky video with an inaudible blaring noise in the background that'll sit buried deep within my camera roll since it's too pathetic for social media.

I tried to create these "moments" while forgetting where to find real ones.

Rewind to the days of the authentic old school cameras, where moments were cherished as we captured them. There wasn't an option for filters or any pressure to upload these pictures anywhere. They were raw, candid and perfect — only ours to admire. We didn't have the luxury like today, as we click over 20 plus pictures a minute and yet still aren't satisfied. It's true we've been given the opportunity to capture every moment. Still, we stay stuck in a digital world that tries to live a better life than we actually have.

But as we face reality, who doesn't love a great picture? I've learned to take a step back and at least take in what the day has to offer before my own eyes. There's significance in putting your phone down once in a while and looking at a view that isn't blocked by a screen. We only have one chance at life, so don't waste it living through the platform you've built for yourself on social media. The world we live in is real and the raw sight of life is an amazing view.

    9 Important Tweets I Love And Live By Every Day

    The tweets I have selected impact me and make me question myself and my everyday life experiences.

    61
    views

    During my free time, I love to explore Twitter. It's basically an accumulation of everyone's point of view on the vaguest to most intricate topics.

    Here are some Tweets I live by:

    1. "Everybody that comes into your life matters, they're either a blessing or a lesson"

    In life people come and go, just like flies. Everyone you meet in life has a purpose. The boy you had your worst heartbreak with, he was a blessing, now he's a lesson of what you don't want in the future. Although it hurt you, in the end, you will be stronger because you had to endure pain.

    2. "Live, and not from behind your phone screen"

    People, put down your phone and actually experience what's going on. To be honest, do half the people on your Snapchat actually care about what you're doing? Do they even view it or just tap through it? These days people solely post on social media so people can see what they're doing. Half the time when people are too busy on their phone's posting away, they don't even pay attention to the people they're with, the pretty views they're looking at, and better yet some people even fake it for desired attention.

    3. "Can't"

    The word can't be simply just an excuse, it is all about prioritizing. If someone really wants to see you, they'll make the time. If someone wants to go somewhere, they will. Silly excuses derive from utter laziness, but at the end of the day, everyone CAN.

    4. "You care too much

    "Do not ever let someone tell you that you care too much. Yea, overthinking is one thing but showing someone how you feel towards them, asking about their day, how they are, etc. At the end of the day being there for those you care about will be returned in your favor. Being affected with human feelings is imperative and if someone tells you that you care too much, tell them to f ***off."

    5. "It's a lonely feeling when someone you care about becomes a stranger."

    In life, unfortunately, people come and go. The person you would laugh with for hours, stay up till 5 am talking to every day, hang out with on an everyday basis, etc. In life we cannot depend on others for our own happiness, we can't force people to stay in our lives because they're part of an everyday routine. Make your happiness a priority, & Be there for others, but never leave yourself behind.

    6. "Never run back to what broke you."

    Ladies and gentlemen, if something seriously tore you apart ... DO NOT go running back as soon as you get hit with that "wyd" or "I've changed" text. We all do it, there's no lying allowed here, but seriously if something broke you, people don't just change in the snap of a finger. You will get hurt again. It will NOT be worth it.

    7. "Always hope but never expect."

    If you're like me, you'll spend hours a day before bed thinking about all of the "what if "situations there are in your life. Sometimes you'll get so into thought you may even think something happened. If you dwell and think of all of the possible scenarios, you will drive yourself physically insane.

    8. "You'll heal. It just takes time."

    Use the tissues, and a friend's shoulder to lean on. Everything that kills you on the inside eventually will make you stronger. A breakup with a boyfriend/ girlfriend, losing a friend, failing a test, etc. These are all part of the learning process in life.

    9. "Make your happiness a priority, & Be there for others, but never leave yourself behind."

    Ultimately at the end of the day, you have "me, myself, and I "to worry about. You have to make decisions in life that will make you happy. If you think something you do will upset someone, talk to them because at the end of the day if something is going to make you happier, your friend will understand. Self-care!!!!
