πŸ“Έ Some Thots on Instagram πŸ“Έ


Hi I’ve just been having some Thots about Instagram and I would like to share what's been on my mind.

It's no secret that this Instagram model airbrushed picture perfect perfection is damaging to people and their self esteem. A perfect picture doesn’t mean a perfect life. Just because some girl can take a good selfie and knows how to use facetune doesn’t mean her life is good. Instagram is literally all fake. I don’t always look how I look on Instagram, but when I'm feeling myself and wanna post a picture then it’s my choice to be an Instagram Thot. 

It's a good feeling to wake up in the morning and feel good about yourself. That being said, with these platforms presenting constant highly curated versions of people we know and the world around us. It’s easy for our perception of reality to become distorted. We tend to forget that what we see on Instagram isn’t real.

I don’t think the problem with Instagram is the platform. I think it's our own perception of others. I get that it can be a toxic place filled with seemingly perfect people. But the beauty of it is that we don’t have to follow people we don’t want to! Shocker right? If you don’t wanna see other peoples airbrushed realities you don’t have to. There are plenty of Instagram users that are interesting enough to follow that don’t shove picture perfect perfection down our throats.

If you wanna follow Instagram Thots that's fine. But don’t whine about how it lowers your self esteem to see that. It's your choice to consume that kind of media.

(Also I just wanna clarify that I don’t mean Instagram Thots in a disrespectful way. I just think it's a fun thing to say instead of an Instagram model lol. )

It's a complete waste of your energy to wish you looked like someone else. You’re not gonna find a magic lamp one day and get a Genie to grant you 3 wishes. You’re going to be in your body for your whole life. The best you can be is your healthiest you. Everyone wants what they don't have. So just own your own shit, love it, be the healthiest you can be. Don’t idolize other people's lives. No one's life is that good. It's important to be able to distinguish what is a person's reality, and what’s just their social media.

“We know ourselves from the inside but we only know others from the outside. We don’t see how everyone else is just as flawed as you are. As some smart person said, we see our blooper reel and others' highlights reel.” (this is from my article πŸ€— 23 Things I've Accomplished in 23 Years πŸ€—, I highly recommend it if you need a self esteem boost).

I think it's also important to mention that not every Insta Thot wants to show off their body to prove how amazing and better they are than you. A lot of people are out here trying to promote body positivity and loving yourself. And even if they are just showing off their body they have just as much right as everyone else to post what makes them feel good. People can post whatever they want to post. 

To go along with that I think that shaming these beautiful women /Insta Thots is equally body shaming. They can’t help that they were born with that type of body or that type of hair or whatever it is. Fitness Insta Thots worked hard for that body and they have just as much right as anyone else to show it off.

You don’t know other people's stories. They could have for the past 22 years felt bad about their body and only just now finally gotten to the point where they love themselves enough and are confident enough to post it on the internet. It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone has struggles and no one's life is perfect.

If anything it could show how different peoples bodies are. Everyone is shaped differently and built differently and the parts of Instagram that are toxic, don’t have to be the places you spend your time. If the healthiest you is a size 10 then that's your healthiest you and you should be proud of that. People just have different bodies. It's ludacrous to wish for something that's just impossible to have. It's like wishing you were 5’9” when you're 5’5”. It doesn't matter how much you wish for it your body will never be that.

You are 100% in control of how you feel about your body. Control what you can control and don’t worry about what you can’t. If you care that much about how your body looks you have the control to change. If that means going under the knife so be it. Your body is yours forever.

It also doesn’t make sense for you to compare yourself to Fitness models when you aren’t willing to take the steps to become that. It seems like some people can whine and whine and whine about what they don’t have but they aren’t willing to put in the work for it. It is very much within your reach if you want to have a fit body. It requires work, not complaining.

I don’t have time for anyone who cries about their body but who has also never stepped foot in a gym. It's up to you how healthy of a lifestyle you live. If you're not willing to put in the work to get whatever you see on Instagram. Then stop wasting your energy on it.

If you’re not willing to put in the work to be the best version of yourself the only person you have to blame is you.

Own your shit, embrace your shit. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I guarantee you that there are people out there who wish they had the body that you have. Worry about your damn self and stop worrying about how other people's lives look on social media.

Learn to not give a fuck. The less fucks you give the happier you’re gonna be. Instagram literally isn’t real and it's a giant waste of your time to wish you were anybody else but you.
