Real life is so much more interesting than anything you will see on social media.
So please, just put down your phone and pick up your head.
Be present with the human beings you spend your time with, be present with yourself, be present with the world.
Don’t forget to live because you think you’re living through your phone.
Trust me when I say “real life is the feeling you get when you support your friends and see them doing the things that make their cells dance”.
Real life is 8am, wrapped within the limbs of someone who makes your stomach feel like it is buzzing with an electric kind of happiness.
Real life is sitting with yourself, in all of your depth and your decay, and not distracting your mind from all that is seeking to be felt within you.
Real life is gritty, it breaks you open, and it is meant to weather you in the most beautiful and meaningful ways, but you will miss all of that if you are looking down.
Always choose to look up.
