Who do you follow and why? 🤷🏼♀️
Some important things to ask yourself are:
• Does this page inspire me?
• Is it educational?
• Does the content make me feel good about myself?
• Am I following them just because they follow me?
If you find yourself scrolling and second guessing yourself, why do you follow that page?
The amazing thing about this platform is YOU control who you follow so you can create your desired feed.
I’ve given myself a challenge recently to reduce the amount of pages I follow. I went from 1600+ and now I’m down to 900, still making my way through. I don’t want to miss the posts from those I enjoy most.
I unfollowed pages that I thought I might purchase from but never did, brands I once collaborated with years ago but no longer use and people whose content doesn’t connect with me anymore. As we grow our interests change and that’s ok.
While we are all busy in our lives & can’t comment on every single post we see, if we are scrolling through our feed we should be able to show some love and double tap the images at least ❤️❤️ But if you see a post and catch yourself comparing, questioning who you are or being triggered by what you see, be a little ruthless and simply unfollow! 🌈 You owe yourself that!
Yes I may lose followers from this but for me this has never been about numbers. I would only ever want you to enjoy what I’m putting out there and show you that’s there’s more to me than just a photo you see.
So if you’re following thousands of accounts or feeling confronted with the content on your screens, start culling and notice the positive difference in your feeds.
