I was scrolling through Instagram the other day and I noticed these "bigger name" Instagram Peeps are starting to post about their opinion on other Instagram pages more and more often.....
* not in a good way.
And then I got lost on one in particular which led me to their Blog and I began to read on that, and after about 4 blogs I had to close my lap top out of frustration. This blog was solely based on their thoughts on IG and what pages are bullshit and what pages aren't bullshit.
That ANYONE who post the fitness post of " flexed versus relaxed" photos are a joke and to not follow those people --- WHAT?
APPARENTLY after 60k followers you are allowed to tell people who they should and shouldn't follow, what type of pages they should and shouldn't follow, and how they should and shouldn't be inspired by.
NOW - no one ever name drops because no one wants to look like THAT GUY, but very passive aggressively mentions the TYPE of pages you and I shouldn't follow...
Is it just me that, that completely MIND BLOWING.
WHO ARE YOU to TELL ME who should inspire me.
WHY is YOUR page so much better than everyone elses?
WHY are you trying so hard to make YOUR page look like the "realist of the real" and you're too good for what other pages are posting.
GIVE ME A BREAK.
You have a number bigger than others on followers.... BIG WHOOP. You are not entitled to TELL people who they should follow by your passive aggressive post.
So what I want to say is DO YOU. DONT let any "big name" IG human make you feel any way about who you follow. IF something or someone INSPIRES you in a positive way than FOLLOW THEM. If they don't, don't follow them.
What you look at, process, read, is impacting your life, make sure its impacting it in a positive way.
YOU are the puppet master and have complete control over what you see on Instagram.
If you are an influencer - don't let anyone make you feel bad about how you post and promote yourself. You wanna post your boobies - GO on with your bad self. ( unless youre still in high school - then don't do that ) Who wants to see that will follow, and who doesn't ... well lets be honest they will still follow you and hate on you.
Instagram is a way to express yourself, how ever that may be. If you want to have all the discount codes in the world than thats okay too. Just be You and don't let these IG entitled people tell you otherwise.
Heres my thoughts and ill be done -
BE A POSITIVE LIGHT IN THIS WORLD.
PUSH TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
BE A KIND HUMAN AND DONT TROLL ON ANYONE OR SHAME OTHERS.
BE INSPIRED BY WHATEVER THAT IS AND EMBRACE IT.
This was short and sweet <3
Happy Snow Day from my couch in austin texas to you.
