So, I never jumped on the Instagram frenzy when it came out, partly because I don’t really post much on social media as I’m not sure what I have to say is worth hearing (the irony as I’m writing a blog!) but also, some of you may have noticed this with my Marie Kondo & Mrs Hinch posts, but I have quite an addictive personality, once an idea plants it’s seed I can’t let it go without exhausting it.
This became my main fear of getting Instagram, I wasn’t sure I would be able to cope with constantly seeing celebrities or other people’s rose tinted versions of themselves, and not compare myself. Plus if I did compare myself I wasn’t honestly sure if I was strong minded enough to realise THIS IS FAKE. Of course people put there general life on social media, however I think it’s important to take a step back and remind ourselves most people only put the very best part of themselves out there, that’s ok, but it gives off a false sense of normal to those of us just managing to hold it together!
But alas, I have caved, and created an Instagram account! Mostly so I can check out the fun memories my friends post after a night out, all I ever hear is “Oh you didn’t see all the pictures I put up from the party, oh yeah I forget you don’t have insta” ergh, so here we are, years behind the curve but hey ho!
It had however opened up a whole world of exciting new people I can follow for my own general musings! So happy days! Any recommendations for inspiring people worth following, let me know.
