Recently we can easily see others' activities in social media and compare them with yourself.
The internet is a competitive flat world where everybody is displayed on the 1d line and it is often visible to see how many people are above you. Only limited people could be outstanding. By excessive competition, we might be burn out since you always comparing yourself to "better" people and feel helpless. As you go up, you will be able to see further from the higher position and the gap to the point where you could see might expand exponentially.
At the same time, we might be also afraid of being accused in social media. Anybody, even if not famous people, has a potential to make a burst in SNS. Then some might believe exposing nothing would be less risk.
These factor might lower our self confidence, however, if we would like to be independent professional, we need to publish our work and should not be afraid of being criticized. With the right community where you can feel your small but meaningful progress, we should keep expressing our idea and opinions to the internet.
How do you encourage yourself to express yourself to the internet?
