On a fuzzy Saturday afternoon, I logged into my inactive Instagram account. Unsurprisingly, all I found was an ad in every second scroll.
Many ads were selling how I wouldn’t be “Happy” with what I had. How ugly/unhappy/lonely/obsolete I am, and how buying “a product” would make my life instantly better.
In the past, I have given in to temptation and bought a few stuff. Unsurprisingly my mental state would’’t change after the purchase.
I was always left wanting more. And wanting to make things better than they are. Just like how seeing the NEWS makes me anxious and leaves me wanting for more!
Makes me wonder, ads especially the ones that offer comparisons are distributing dissatisfaction! Isn’t it?
