What I Didn’t Post on Instagram: A Collection of Essays on Real Lives and What We Filter Out

We asked women to share the truth behind their Instagram photos. What happened next moved us, and the book What I Didn’t Post On Instagram by Chrissy Stockton was born.

This book is the reminder we all need. It drives home the fact that we are all just trying to figure it out — we are all a little confused when it comes to life, we are all just trying to belong.

The essays housed in this collection are deeply honest and real, and they make you feel seen and connected because they reveal the humanness in a platform that has quickly become less than human. They expose an honest, softer, somewhat confronting side to social media — a side that we all need to see, a side that we all need to digest, because that is the side that inspires, that is the side that represents who we are.

In an age where a single Instagram post is consumed by thousands of people, it’s time we started to make social media real again. This book is our first step.
