I’ve came across a good read from a fellow photographer Pat Kay on the topic of ego and how the naturally occurring human characteristic can indulge us but then stunt our personal and professional growth. The main topic of this thought leads to social media and how all evidence points to its inherent ability of thinking you are better than you actually are.
“Social media has a tendency to inflate your your sense of self-worth, self-righteouness and level of perceived skill at an accelerated rate.”
I recommend reading his blog as it puts things into perspective on interaction is just noise which interaction actually carry value.
