The perfect lighting, the ideal framing and composition, the right angle and posture, vibrant colors and of course some filters - that's about it for the secret formula for pitch-perfect Instagram photos.

These incredible dream-like photos fill our timelines and transport us to a magical world where people have perfect bodies, eat only healthy vegan food, have an effortless appearance, travel every day and discover new things, and buy expensive branded clothes almost every week. This Instagram world is so perfect that it makes us miserable and jealous of others who live these perfect Instagram lives.

This Girl Shows In A Hilarious Way The Reality Is Different From What We See On Instagram

"Everybody has tummy fat, it is normal and nothing to be ashamed of. Somehow society has put the idea of beauty in our mind that you just look beautiful if you have a flat tummy. Bullshit! Just because everybody hides their tummy on photos, doesn't mean they don't have tummy fat, so don't be insecure about it. Don't put so much pressure to yourself to look a certain way. You are amazing just the way you are.

By the way, I edited just my hair and face on the left picture NOT MY BODY! This is how the right pose and sucking the tummy in can make a huge difference!"

Why can't we just embrace the tummy! Besides, I think she was prettier in the unedited version.

However, it is worth noting that the reality behind these photos doesn't always reflect the perfection of the scene. There's no such thing as a perfect world and some people prove that these standards are simply... unrealistic. To break these impossible standards, Kim Britt from Switzerland decided to show her followers that everything you see on Instagram is unreal.

"Sorry to disappoint you but in reality winter in Switzerland looks way more like the right picture... The snow stays just for one or two days if you not live up in the mountains and then all you get is snow mud and freezing wind."

"Instagram: What I tell people how I spent Christmas holidays: staying cozy and cuddling.

Reality: How I really felt: Totally exhausted from all that Christmas food. Who feels buddy?"

Why is there such a drastic difference between photos? Judging by the right photo, that pupper doesn't seem to be in the best health..

In a very hilarious way, she takes side-by-side photos of herself that show the same situations in reality and how they would look in a perfect Instagram world. From putting on red lipstick to eating healthy, she shows the honest reality which we all try to hide behind many filters and the right composition!

"Some people are worth melting for, but in reality the melting snow in my hair and face isn't that romantic. My man loves to tease me. Couldn't be mad though! One of my favorite pictures from this year. Can you relate to it?"

"Eat good feel good. In my case, eating good also includes good pasta. I'm so tired of being told what I should eat and what I shouldn't. If my body tells me to eat carbs, then I do, if I wanna eat a salad then I do. As long as you feel good and your health is not harm, you don't need to restrict any food."

"We all come in different shapes in sizes and that's good! It's so easy to pretend to have a "better" body on a picture. If we are relaxed and not posing, the body looks different. That is okay, everybody has this. Don't get brainwashed by all those edited and posed pictures.

The truth is, we might all have parts on us, that we think are not perfect, but guess what, that's something good. We don't need to look "perfect" (by the way, what should perfect look like anyway?). How boring would it be if we would all look the same?

Take care to your body, don't do crash diets and restrict all "bad" food just to look a certain way you see on pictures, which don't always show the truth. Enjoy all types of food in a healthy amount. Listen to your body and let go negatives thoughts about it."

"Little reminder that 90% of the photos you see on social media or magazines are photoshoped or with face tune optimized. Don't compare yourself to photos there. You never know if it was edited or how long it took to take a good picture. Enjoy your weekend! Letting negative thoughts go and focus on the positive ones. You are worthy anyway!"
