Social Media Inadequacy...
They say, unfollow any social media accounts that make you feel bad. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I say that’s step one, let’s go a bit deeper and look at why what you see evokes feelings of self doubt and unworthiness. Let’s delve into the source.
I know that I experience everything through my history and mood which changes the filter on what I see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
An influencer uses their page like some sort of catalogue to sell stuff #ad / #notanad, someone is always travelling #wanderlust, someone is always being invited to cool events #livingmybestlife... check in with yourself and ask why this is creating feelings of inadequacy for you? These feelings are symptoms, what is the cause? How does this apply to your life? Are you living on autopilot insta responding to life with out thinking about where your response comes from and perhaps projecting your 'stuff' outwardly? These are heavy questions but I am asking because asking myself these questions in safe environments with supportive tools transformed my thought processes. This introspection gave me the power (She-Ra vibes) to own my stuff/ myself, become more discerning and learn when to mind my own business (work in progress).
Giving your self time and space to think, feel and develop a supportive toolkit could change your outlook which could then change your life. It could make things like being irritated by other people's social media posts a thing of the past unless its offensive and derogatory (both of which are subjective I know).⠀⠀
