We’re the society that learned to edit their lives. We don’t have to accept our complexities and contradictions and genuine, non-glossy, unfiltered, real personhood… so there’s no chance of us accepting other people in that way either. Throw a filter on it and edit your status and only post the pretty, inspiring, society-ready friend-list-consumable moment of your existence and call it a life. We become fractions of people when we do this, ones who don’t hold the capacity to actually maintain a meaningful anything.
