Don’t be fooled by what you see, TV host Kobi Kihara warns

 Kobi Kihara

The Better Living TV host dropped a bomb after she warned people not to be obsessed with social media pressure which creates the impression of a perfect life. In short, it is not what you always see. She revealed that most of her real life never makes it in on social media and her well-crafted page is so because it is curated.

So before you get it twisted and get depressed by her ‘perfect life’ because of her carefully picked pics, here is what she had to say.

‘’Hey you....listen, my page is curated, I'm a photographer & creative so it's easy to pull off, I see it as my online gallery, so don't be fooled my friend. Most of us have been met with an obsession for approval and validation, while lacking transparency and authenticity. We are pressured to work angles, pose perfectly, use filters, crop away our insecurities, and edit our flaws to create a reality that ceases to exist....don't believe the hype, don't get sucked in, most of my REAL life doesn't make it onto social media and those who really know me, know that...Live an authentic life, I'm striving towards that on a daily basis and I hope I make it.’’ She posted.


The message was well received with her fans echoing her sentiments.
