People, particularly OW, who gush about their perfect, awesome lives on social media - are they pretty much full of shit?? Is this what people really sit around and do to thumb their noses at the cyber world?
Or just full of shit. That too

i.e. yes, they are.
After I readit, I had this epiphany. I'm sitting here in peace, no burden of lies, cheating, etc. calm in my own skin, integrity running on all cylinders. And she's out there doing just what your quote said, and I thot, "Gee, that must be exhausting, living that facade". Literally exhausting.
Sorry Unfound, missed your quote the first time. It's excellent too!

People who can't exist without external validation tend to need a whole heck of a lot of self promotion and smoke and mirrors to make themselves look great superfically so that they get the admiration they must have in order to not collapse under the weight of their own lack of self worth.
full of shit
Oh how I love the wisdom of SIers!
The social media hounds are symbolic basement dwellers. Remember the Brad Paisley song "Online"? YouTube it any time you need a reminder that, yes, they are usually lying.
I tell people I am tired but really my heart is broken and I am sad.
- they are lying
- they are ONLY presenting the best parts of their lives for the world to see, and leaving out the crap

I know it's hard to imagine, but it's true.
This is not to say that any life is without hardship---we all have trials. But the trials of some ---while certainly significant to them-- may be both more transient and not of the magnitude that we experience.
