Whether it's a photo of food, a bedroom, a view, or a dog most everyone feels the pressure to make the photo perfect so all their "friends" will love it. If you want to feel bad about your messy life be sure to spend lots of time looking at these peoples' photos while imaging their lives are so much more fun and simpler than yours. The truth, of course, is that those pictures don't relfect real life.

Enter the very polarizing Lena Dunham. People seem to either love her or hate her, there's nothing in between. But one thing you might like her for is her Insta feed, which is not what you would call clean and relaxing.

No photoshop, no clever poses or shots taken at just the right angle. Instead she gives us lots of bad lighting and a makeup-free face and, sometimes, a clothing-free body. She's just as open about body image as she is about her painful years long struggle with endometriosis. Realism.

And she's raked over the coals for this in her comments! If you try reading them you'll soon stop, they're just too awful. Nevertheless, she persists and doesn't seem to care about any of the criticism.

So when you need a break from looking at photos that make the world seem unattainable. Lena's feed will help remind you that it's not.
