Good Read: 5 Things to Do on Instagram Instead of Comparing Yourself With Others
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday! I wasn’t sure if I was going to post today; but, then I received an email notification from one of my favorite sites The Zoe Report and one of the brief articles just hit home for me. Therefore, I decided to share the article on my blog since my post yesterday was about self-acceptance, taking time for you and how life/things are not actually "PERFECT" whatever Perfect means; however, a girl can still dream, right? LOL
Anyways, the article is called 5 Things to Do On Instagram Instead of Comparing Yourself With Others and is written by Lauren Black from The Zoe Report.
If you know me or do not know me that well, I freaking LOVE Instagram. I seriously can sit for hours and look at pictures of animals, travel/places, fashion etc. Ask my husband ;) (Yep, I think I might need a new hobby too, ha ha.)
So as soon as I saw Instagram in the title, I was clicking the link to read the article. The other piece that grabbed my attention was about comparing yourself to others on Instagram which I am 110% guilty of doing! I mean most of us, I think, tend to compare ourselves to others; it is natural tendency, for me at least.
I will also admit that, while I am mostly and usually super happy and like: “Go Girl or Guy or Person Good for them/you”, I also TOTALLY experience some envy and slight depression about myself after spending time on Instagram. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I am forever a work in progress and am always trying to find useful tips for navigating LIFE.
PLUS: Pictures can totally be misleading and deceiving as most of us know. I mean for real though; so much work goes into pictures these days!?!?! The staging, the number of pictures I have to take before I am like: I guess this will work lol. Very stressful, but always pretty fun too ;)
Example is the image below from my Instagram: I don't even know how many pictures I had to take just to get this selfie, which isn't even a great picture or one of my favorites. I just gave up, lol. Plus, my dog isn't wearing actual sunglasses; it's a sticker image. :)
With this all being said, I recommend taking a look at this quick and helpful read if interested. Click here to access the article. BUT Never forget and always remember: it’s totally okay to be you, quirks/flaws whatever ;) #selfacceptance #loveyourself
I must say, I do love giving/receiving complements and have made some new friends by following and complementing them; pretty cool. Oh and be careful with the 3rd one LOL- it’s addictive for me, but I LOVE IT too. :) Plus the last one, I think is spot on; especially because I have had my BFFs text me to like their pics and I do the same to them ;)
